Brooklyn Violent Felonies Lawyers

Former Prosecutors Representing the Accused in New York City and Long ISland

Felonies are a category of criminal charges that are considered much more serious than misdemeanors. Convictions of these crimes, whether at the state or federal level, lead to prison time of a year or more. On the other hand, misdemeanors carry jail sentences of less than a year. Fines and additional court penalties may also be harsher than those imposed by misdemeanors. At the federal level, felony punishments may be subject to federal sentencing guidelines that operate on a points system, starting with a base number of points that may be adjusted up or down depending on the circumstances. 

If you are being investigated or have already been charged with a violent felony at the state or federal level, we strongly advise that you seek help from the criminal defense team at Mottola Uris Law.

What Are Violent Felonies in New York?

As the name suggests, violent felonies involve crimes that involve physical force or aggressive acts against others. 

These crimes can include:

  • Homicide, including murder, attempted murder, and manslaughter
  • Armed robbery
  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Sexual assault, rape, child molestation, aggravated assault upon a minor
  • Arson
  • Kidnapping
  • Stalking
  • Unlawful imprisonment
  • Vehicular assault
  • Terrorist attacks
  • Human trafficking
  • Sex trafficking

In New York, prison sentences imposed for violent felonies are either indeterminate or determinate. The most serious felonies are categorized as Class A felonies, charged to such crimes as murder, arson, or terrorism. Convictions for these may lead to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Indeterminate sentences provide a range of years for incarceration, such as a minimum of one year up to a maximum of four years. In these cases, once you have served out the minimum, you become eligible for parole. When denied parole, your time in prison will be limited by the maximum term. Determinate sentences have a defined amount of incarceration time that doesn’t change.

Certain violent felony convictions in New York are subject to determinate sentences followed by a term of probation. How you will be sentenced for a violent felony conviction in New York will ultimately depend on the class of felony and whether you have prior convictions.
