Felony Crimes

Murfreesboro Felony Crimes Lawyer

Former Prosecutor Fighting for the Accused in Middle Tennessee

Tennessee offenses are classified into two broad categories: misdemeanors and felonies, each carrying distinct implications and consequences. 

Felonies represent the more severe type of offenses, characterized by harsher penalties that can include prolonged prison time, substantial fines, and lasting effects on your rights and freedoms.

At Parkerson Law, we can leverage our extensive experience to provide robust legal defenses for those facing felony charges. Mr. Parkerson deeply understands the local judicial system, courtesy of his 20 years in criminal law and tenure as an Assistant District Attorney. Thus, our firm is uniquely positioned to help you navigate these challenging circumstances. 

If you are under a criminal investigation or have been arrested for a felony, our firm is a clear choice for the kind of professionalism you need to fight for the best possible outcome.

Felony Crimes in Tennessee

Distinguishing between felonies and misdemeanors is primarily a matter of the severity of the alleged crime and its corresponding punishment. Misdemeanors are considered less severe and typically carry a maximum jail time of 11 months and 29 days, along with potential fines. 

On the other hand, felonies have significantly stiffer penalties, with jail sentences ranging from one year to life imprisonment. These offenses include murder, kidnapping, rape, vehicular homicide, drug trafficking, aggravated assault, robbery, theft, white-collar crimes, and more.

Felony Sentencing in Tennessee

Felony sentencing in Tennessee follows a structured approach. For example, a Class C Felony, like robbery, has a standard sentencing range of three to 15 years. However, this can vary depending on whether the person charged is a repeat offender. A standard offender, or someone with no prior convictions, will likely face a sentence on the lower end. In contrast, a multiple offender, persistent offender, or career offender could face up to a maximum of 15 years.

Put Two Decades of Professional Experience in Your Corner

Navigating the complexities of felony charges necessitates the immediate involvement of experienced legal help. The severity of the charges implies potential life-altering consequences, from lengthy incarceration to hefty fines, extended probation, and the future with a permanent felony record. 

A felony record can negatively impact your ability to find employment or housing, disqualify you from professional licenses and educational opportunities, or result in deportation efforts if you are a noncitizen.
