Effective Representation for All Types of Felony Charges

We have represented clients charged with:

What Are the Most Common Penalties for Felonies?

Felony convictions in Georgia can result in severe and life-changing penalties. The consequences depend on the type and severity of the crime committed. Here are some of the most common penalties that individuals might face if convicted of a felony charge:

  • Imprisonment: Felony convictions often lead to substantial prison time, ranging from one year to life in prison, depending on the severity of the crime. For the most serious offenses, such as murder, a life sentence or even the death penalty may be imposed.
  • Fines: Individuals convicted of felonies can be subjected to hefty fines, sometimes amounting to tens of thousands of dollars. These fines are imposed in addition to any other penalties and can cause significant financial strain.
  • Probation: Instead of, or in addition to imprisonment, a court may impose a lengthy probation period. During probation, the convicted individual must comply with strict conditions set by the court, such as regular check-ins with a probation officer, community service, and avoiding any further legal trouble.
  • Restitution: Courts may order convicted individuals to pay restitution to victims as part of their sentencing. This is financial compensation intended to cover losses or damages incurred by the victims as a result of the felony.
  • Loss of Civil Rights: A felony conviction can lead to the loss of various civil rights, including the right to vote, serve on a jury, and hold public office. In many cases, convicted felons also lose the right to possess firearms.
  • Employment and Housing Difficulties: A felony record can create substantial barriers to employment and housing opportunities. Many employers and landlords conduct background checks, and a felony conviction can limit the individual's ability to secure a job or find suitable housing.
  • Mandatory Treatment Programs: Depending on the nature of the felony, courts may require participation in mandatory treatment programs, such as substance abuse rehabilitation or anger management courses.

Understanding these potential penalties underscores the importance of seeking experienced legal representation if facing felony charges. At Schneider Lerch, LLC, our dedicated Savannah felony attorneys are committed to fighting for the best possible outcome for your case.

How Do You Defend Against Felony Charges?

When facing felony charges, it is crucial to have a strong defense strategy in place to protect your rights and future. At Schneider Lerch Bronston, LLC, our experienced Savannah felony attorneys are dedicated to building effective defense strategies tailored to each client's unique situation.

We understand that every felony case is different, and there are various factors that can impact the outcome. Our skilled attorneys will thoroughly analyze the details of your case, gather evidence, and explore all possible defenses to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Some common defenses for felony charges include:

  • Insufficient evidence: If the prosecution lacks strong evidence to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, we can challenge the validity and reliability of the evidence presented.
  • Violation of constitutional rights: We will examine whether your rights were violated during the arrest, search, or seizure, and if so, we can file motions to suppress evidence obtained unlawfully.
  • Self-defense or defense of others: If you acted in self-defense or to protect others from harm, we can argue that your actions were justified.
  • Mistaken identity: If there is a possibility of mistaken identity or unreliable eyewitness testimony, we can present evidence to challenge the accuracy of the identification.
  • Alibi: If you have a credible alibi that proves you were somewhere else at the time the alleged crime was committed, we can present evidence to support your alibi.
