Rancho Cucamonga Felony Defense Attorney
Let Newman & Allen Fight for You!
More serious than misdemeanors, felonies are reserved for the harshest crimes. Because of this, they come with serious penalties, including huge fines, years of imprisonment, and even the death penalty. Being accused of a felony can seem undeniably bleak, including adding stress and anxiety on you and your family.
Felonies include, but are not limited to:
- Burglary of an inhabited building
- Rape, including statutory rape
- Sale or trafficking of a large quantity of drugs
- Felony DUI, including cases involving major injury or death
In addition to this, California has “wobbler” cases – those that can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. For example, grand theft auto cases may be tried either way, depending on prior convictions or the behavior of the defendant.
No matter what you’ve been accused of, schedule a free consultation with one of our Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense lawyers immediately.
Three Strikes Rule
California's Three Strikes Rule states that each subsequent offense adds the possibility of a harsher sentence and longer prison time. However, there are statutes of limitations on all cases. This is the time limit which prosecution has to bring a case against you. The limitations are different for each circumstance and there are exceptions.
