Felony Sentencing

Felony Sentencing

 Today, felony sentences are based on the sentencing grid.  Defendants receive  sentences ranging from probation to a lengthy active prison sentence depending on many things.

 Generally, a felony sentence is based on many factors such as the class of felony, (felonies are classified A-I based on their seriousness.), the Defendant’s criminal record, aggravating factors and mitigating factors. The basics of felony sentencing are the class of felony (A_I); the Defendant’s social and criminal history and the circumstances surrounding the crime.
