Felony Offenses

A felony offense is a crime punishable by one year or more in state prison. All felonies begin with a preliminary hearing to determine whether there is sufficient evidence or probable cause. As an experienced criminal lawyer, Mr. Hood has defended felony charges in courts throughout the Southern and Central districts.

Misdemeanor Offense

A misdemeanor offense is punishable by up to one year in the county jail. Misdemeanors generally also carry a maximum fine of up to $1,000. After the successful completion of a probationary period, a misdemeanor can be expunged from your record.

Wobbler Offenses

A Wobbler Offense is comprised of certain crimes that can be charged either as a felony or a misdemeanor. It is important to note that even if a Wobbler begins as a felony, it can be reduced to a misdemeanor at the sentencing hearing or after the completion of probation.

Third Strike Cases

Under California law, if you have two prior convictions that are serious felony offenses, you could be facing the possibility of 25 years-to-life in prison upon conviction of any third felony offense. What’s more, the third felony does not necessarily need to be a serious felony to qualify as the third strike.
