What Is a Felony?
A felony is the highest level of crime in the U.S. It carries the harshest punishments, usually landing the offender in prison, not jail. A felony charge on a criminal record is hard to wash away, and it affects someone’s entire life.
Michigan has eight different classes of felony:
- Class H: up to two years of incarceration. If the offense is minor enough, the sentence can be served in jail instead of prison. A Class H crime can be something like intentionally falsifying your identity.
- Class G: up to two years in prison. There is no option for jail. Intentionally writing a bad check or a second (or more) domestic abuse charge is a Class G felony.
- Class F: up to four years in prison. Certain forms of fraud and trafficking small amounts of drugs are classified as Class F felony offenses.
- Class E: up to five years in prison. Class E includes weapon possession with intent to harm, shoplifting, and third-degree home invasion.
- Class D: up to ten years in prison. This is where the offenses start to become even more serious. A Class D felon is charged for crimes like human trafficking and theft of property worth $20,000 or more.
- Class C: up to 15 years in prison. Robbery and manslaughter are examples of Class C felonies.
- Class B: up to 20 years in prison. Class B includes child abuse and arson.
- Class A: There is no limit for prison time with Class A felonies. A guilty verdict could mean life in prison. Many Class A felonies are “first degree.” For example, a first-degree murder is intentional and premeditated.
