Columbus Felony Sentencing
Columbus Criminal Defense Lawyer
In Columbus, the courts classify felony charges in five distinct categories: first degree, second degree, third degree, fourth degree, and fifth degree. First degree being the most serious felony charge and fifth degree being the least serious felony charge. Defendants found guilty of a felony charge are sentenced according to the specification of the felony degree that they are being charged with. Some felony charges are not classified in a degree and have specific penalties imposed in accordance with the laws of that individual crime. Furthermore, felony charges have statute of limitations that must be met in order for the charges to be recognized by the court. Call our Offices for detail and a review of your case.
