Many times as an experienced Manhattan Criminal Lawyer, clients will ask me what the difference is between a felony offense and a misdemeanor.
- A felony is the most serious charge, followed by a misdemeanor, violation, ordinance, and traffic offense.
- If you do more than one year in jail, you would be facing a felony.
- If you face a felony charge, you will be prosecuted in the supreme court.
