Felony and Misdemeanor Crimes
State and Federal Crimes are classified as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on their severity. Misdemeanors are more serious than petty offenses and typically carry punishments of heavy fines or imprisonment for less than one year. A misdemeanor jail sentence is served in a local or county jail, rather than a state prison. Certain criminal activity can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the severity of the offense.
Felony offenses are considered the worst possible criminal offenses, and are punished by prison sentences of over 1 year or death by execution for capital felony offenses, such as first-degree murder.
