Felony Bail: Make Bail!

Handcuffed ManThere are generally two classifications of crimes: felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are the more serious of the two; each state has different rules about what constitutes a felony. In general, felonies are crimes that come with penalties of at least a year behind bars.

What’s the difference between a felony arrest and a felony charge? An arrest just means you’re suspected of the crime. This is when bail is generally set and you can make arrangements to get out of jail to await your court appearance. A felony charge is when formal legal proceedings have been put into motion by prosecutors.

After a felony arrest

Hands on Cell BarsIn California, punishments for offenses are on a crime-by-crime basis. (Other states put certain crimes in classes, such as a “Class A” felony.) The sentences generally fall into one of three terms: low, mid and high. (This excludes crimes that result in a life sentence.)

There are certain crimes that can be classified as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the specifics of the case. In California, these are known as “wobblers.” A case can be turned from a felony to a misdemeanor if the judge decides that you don’t have a serious criminal history and that you didn’t act in a violent manner, for example. One type of crime that can often be a “wobbler” would be grand theft auto.

Then there’s the other side of the spectrum. In California, if you’re convicted of a total of three felony crimes, you can be sent away for a very long time under the “Three Strikes” law.
