Felony Crimes & Penalties in Georgia
In Georgia, felony crimes are defined by the length of the prison sentence associated with conviction, which, in general, is one year or longer. There are currently no categories for felonies; however, there are some felonies that are considered more serious and, as such, can result in more severe penalties.
More severe felony crimes in Georgia include:
- Murder, which can lead to capital punishment
- Armed robbery
- Various sex crimes, punishable by up to 25 years in prison in addition to fines that vary based on the offense
In addition to prison, fines, and legal fees, being convicted of a felony could also severely stunt your professional advancement. Many employers run background checks on prospective employees and will not hire workers with felony crimes in their history. This is why it is important to put up a fight and protect yourself by hiring an aggressive criminal defense lawyer who can help you work toward a more desirable outcome in your case.
