Felony Traffic Offenses
In a court of law, felony offenses are the most serious form of a crime that an individual can commit. Individuals convicted of these offenses may face serious consequences such as jail time for one year or more. In some states, the crime may be labeled as a “gross” or “aggravated” misdemeanor but may be punishable for the same amount of time as a felony.
In the US, every individual is entitled to a fair trial if he or she has been charged with a crime.
