Have you or a loved one been charged with a felony? Attorney Wegman can help. He is among the top 100 lawyers in Coastal Virginia.

FELONY:

A felony is any offense that carries a possible prison term of 1 year or greater.  Felony categories range from:

  • The lesser, Class 6 felony, carrying a maximum of 5 years in prison to
  • The higher, Class 2 felony carrying the possibility of life in prison

Rarely, a person can be charged with a Class 1 felony, a capital crime. If convicted, they could be sentenced to death. 

CONSEQUENCES OF A FELONY:

A number of consequences accompany felony convictions. A felony results in the loss of many civil and constitutional rights, such as the right to vote, and the right to possess and carry a firearm.

Most importantly, a felony causes stigma that lasts for life. Often, a person convicted of a felony will also be placed on indeterminate supervised probation. This means  that if the probation officer tells you to jump, you have to jump, or face a probation violation hearing.

You may not be able to leave the Commonwealth of Virginia without permission even if your job requires it. You may be called to meet with the probation officer at any time, thus causing interruptions in your work schedule. This assumes you are lucky enough to find work with a felony conviction.
