Understanding Felonies in California
In 2018, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra released crime data for the state of California, which stated that “The violent crime rate per 100,000 population increased 1.5 percent from 2016-2017 while the property crime rate decreased 2.1 percent.” That same year, “… the homicide rate decreased from 4.9 to 4.6 per 100,000 population… [while] the motor vehicle theft rate decreased 5.3 percent, from 448.9 to 424.9 per 100,000 population.”
Depending on a defendant’s prior convictions, a simple misdemeanor can be raised to a felony. Dealing with a felony charge can be overwhelming, confusing and complicated. In California, a capital punishment state, a felony is a crime that results in a maximum sentence of more than a year imprisonment or confinement. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your felony case, you could be looking at severe punishments, which include life in prison without the possibility of parole.
In California, felonies can be further classified as “straight” or “wobbly.” Examples of a “straight” felony include rape, theft of a firearm, murder, or the sale/transportation of a controlled substance. “Wobbly” felony examples include petty theft, assault, or the possession of a controlled substance.
