Felony Charges in California
When a person is charged with a felony, the State of California proceeds as though they may be dangerous criminals. This can mean harder challenges such as larger bail amounts, jail time, and having less important misdemeanors charged as felonies.
Crimes that could be charged as felonies include:
California Felony Penalties
In California, felony crimes are either charged as straight felonies or wobbler felonies. A straight felony is a crime that can only be charged as a felony, whereas a wobbler felony can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the prosecution's choice. If convicted of a felony, the penalties could include:
- Extended time in county jail or state prison
- Up to $10,000 in fines
- Community service
- Victim restitution
- Mandatory drug testing
Unlike other states, California also imposes a rule where subsequent felony convictions are penalized more harshly, meaning if you are convicted of more than one felony, your sentence could be doubled.
