Felonies in Delaware
Felony crimes carry harsher penalties than misdemeanors. Delaware has several felony classifications, ranging from Class A felonies, which are the most serious, to Class G felonies. Our firm represents clients charged with a wide range of felonies.
We represent clients charged with felonies that include:
- Drug possession or sale
The specific legal penalties for conviction depend on the crime and the felony classification. The possible penalties for a felony conviction include a jail or prison sentence, house arrest, probation, large fines, and restitution to the victim. After release from jail, those with a permanent criminal record often find it difficult to obtain employment, housing, and loan opportunities.
