Felony Cases

Charged with a 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

Attorney Wegman can help. He is among the top 100 lawyers in Coastal Virginia and top 3 lawyers in Chesapeake. A person can also be charged with a Class 1 felony, a capital crime and if convicted, they could be sentenced to death. 


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

Most important, a felony causes stigma that can last for life. Often, a person convicted of a felony will also be placed on indeterminate supervised probation. This means essentially 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.
