Felony Charges

Felonies Are Not To Be Taken Lightly

Felonies feature jail sentencing that is greater than six months in a state prison or more than a year in a federal correctional facility. Ohio has five classes of felony ranging for first to fifth, which are six months to 11 years. Ohio categorizes murder and aggravated murder as unclassified felonies, with the possibility of 15 years to life without parole to death. Federal felony classes range for E (least severe) to A (most severe). Either way, there is mandatory minimum sentencing for certain charges that are still quite severe. Fines and restitution can also be quite substantial.
