Being charged with a felony has life long implications. Felonies are categorized as either "A," "B," or "C", with "A" being the most serious involving murder and rape charges.
Any sentence imposed is determined under the Washington State sentencing guidelines, along with your previous criminal history, to calculate the offender score and this dictates what the standard sentencing range is. The sentence can be adjusted upwards or downwards if exceptional or aggravating factors exist.
The felony charges and sentence guidelines are complex and with your future at stake it is imperative you have an experienced attorney representing you.
Here at the Law Office of Kenlynn A. Gallinger, I handle Class B and C Felonies, and each are explained briefly below.
A Class "B" felony includes such crimes as Vehicular Assault, Assault 2nd Degree, Residential and 2nd Degree Burglary, Robbery 2nd Degree, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 1st Degree, Malicious Mischief 1st Degree, Auto Theft, and Stalking in Violation of a Restraining Order and many more. Class B Felonies carry a maximum punishment of up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000.00 fine.
Class "C" Felonies include such crimes as Assault 3rd Degree (which includes an assault on a Police Officer,) Possession of a controlled substance with Intent to Distribute, Theft of Property if the amount is between $750.00 and $1,500.00, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 2nd Degree, Malicious Mischief 2nd Degree, and many more. The maximum penalty for a Class C felony is 5 years in prison and a $10,000.00 fine.
