Felonies

If you or someone you love has been arrested, or you even think an arrest is possible, get the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney may be able to work with the police and public defender’s office to have charges reduced. Then, he or she will fight for your rights through every stage of the process, including:

  • Negotiating a plea deal when appropriate
  • Arguing for bail 
  • Challenging evidence
  • Investigating your case
  • Arguing your case 
  • And, if you are found guilty:
  • Presenting mitigating factors for a lighter sentence
  • Appealing your case
  • Representing you at parole hearings

Understanding felonies

Whether a crime is categorized as a felony or a misdemeanor depends on the seriousness of the charge and the maximum punishment for the crime. Felony charges are reserved for society’s most serious crimes, including:

  • Aggravated Assault
  • DWI, third offense
  • Burglary
  • Arson
  • Drug trafficking 
  • Rape
  • Manslaughter and murder

Crimes that run afoul of federal laws are nearly always considered felonies. They include:

  • Kidnapping across state lines
  • Selling illegal drugs across states lines
  • Civil rights violations
  • Mail fraud


The consequences for being convicted of a felony are very serious. You may have to pay a steep fine and serve significant time in state or federal prison. The Law Offices of Stone & Capobianco will fight for your rights throughout the whole process, call us today @772-781-HELP (4357).
