If you have been charged with a felony, we advise you to plead “NOT guilty” to any charge you face. Pleading “guilty” means the judge will sentence you on every charge -- even up to the maximum penalties. Being charged with a felony is a serious situation. Even the least serious felony charge is punishable by a prison sentence of up to six years. Please realize pleading guilty to the judge means you will leave the court in handcuffs. Any experienced lawyer will tell you to plead NOT guilty. Most of our clients do not serve time behind bars.

Experience Matters. Results Matter. Your Attorney Matters.

Common Felony Crimes

Under Arkansas law, crimes are divided into two broad categories: misdemeanors and felonies. Felonies are more serious than a misdemeanor. Whether a crime is charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depends on the severity of the crime, and therefore how severe the punishment is set.

There are several types of offenses that can be charged as felonies, including:

***We have had many of every single one of the below-listed charges dismissed or found not guilty at trial for our clients.***

Penalties for Felony Offenses in NWA

In Arkansas, felony crimes are divided into five classes, with increasing penalties based on the severity of the crime. Class D felonies are the least serious and are punishable by up to six years in prison. Class Y felonies carry the harshest penalties and can even land a person in jail for life.

WARNING: A hidden cost of a felony is that if you are convicted you lose your gun rights. Contact us to see what Norwood & Norwood, P.A. can do about saving your gun rights!

The following are the penalties for Arkansas felonies:

  • Class D felony: minimum of 0 years, maximum of 6 years in prison and/or up to a $10,000 fine
  • Class C felony: minimum of 3 years, maximum of 10 years in prison and/or up to a $10,000 fine
  • Class B felony: minimum of 5 years, maximum of 20 years in prison and/or up to a $15,000 fine
  • Class A felony: minimum of 6 years, maximum of 30 years in prison and/or up to a $15,000 fine
  • Class Y felony: minimum of 10 years, maximum of 40 years or life in prison

Felony convictions can end up on a person’s permanent criminal record. This often makes it difficult for people convicted of felonies to find a job, apply for housing, or get accepted to an educational institution. Although certain crimes can be sealed, many times, the conviction is impossible to remove from one’s criminal history.
