    What is a Felony?

    The most severe form of criminal crime is a felony. A felony is characterised as a crime that is serious enough to be punishable by sentences ranging from imprisonment for over a year, to a life sentence without parole, and even death.

    In contrast, a misdemeanour is a minor crime, punishable by incarceration for up to a year. One who commits a crime is a criminal; anyone convicted of a crime is known as a convicted felon or convict.

    Although felonies mostly are violent offences that include serious crimes, such as murder, robbery, sexual assault or abduction, and white-collar crimes, such as tax evasion and stock fraud can also be involved.

    Analysing Felony

    Felonies can be classified as the following:

    1. Assault: This is the illegal attempt to inflict abuse on others to harm them, which involves the possibility of physical damage.

    2. Domestic violence: This involves multiple types of mental and sexual harassment and physical aggression. Domestic violence can refer to any partnership within the same household and is not limited to spouses alone.

    3. Drug crimes: It depends on the amount of drugs that you have and your purpose. A large number of drugs found on an individual will lead to a prosecution of drug trafficking because there was an intent to sell.

    4. Kidnapping: A person held against their will is the commonplace concept, usually for a ransom. Kidnapping often happens when a child is abducted by a parent who has no custodial rights.

    5. Murder: Murder, in the first degree, is a person's deliberate and premeditated killing. Murder at second degree is unpremeditated and may result from a related crime, such as robbery.

    6. Manslaughter: Involuntary suicide occurs when someone is unintentionally killed as a result of negligence, such as driving under the influence. Voluntary manslaughter takes place shortly after a heated argument when an individual is killed.
