What is a Felony?
In California, a felony is a crime punishable by a 1 year in state prison all the way to life imprisonment or the death penalty in extreme cases. Murder and manslaughter,
burglary are all examples of crimes that may be classified as felonies. One factor that makes felony offenses so potentially serious is the fact that they may count as strikes on a defendant's criminal record if he or she is convicted, leading to double the penalties for a second strike and 25 years to life in prison for a third felony conviction of any kind.
