Felony & Misdemeanor Charges
If you are charged with a criminal offense, it is critically important that you have experienced legal counsel available to represent you and protect your rights. Attorney Chuck Efstration has extensive experience representing clients charged with a variety of criminal offenses.
Felony Charges: In Georgia, a felony is an offense punishable by imprisonment of one year or more. The more serious felony offenses can carry a mandatory sentence of 5, 10, or 25 years in confinement. A felony conviction can have harsh consequences on an individual’s ability to find employment, as well as limit a person’s rights to vote or carry a firearm.
Misdemeanor Charges: A misdemeanor offense is a charge which carries a maximum penalty of one year in confinement. Other sentence conditions can include a fine, community service, and/or attending rehabilitative programs. Although the penalties associated with a misdemeanor are not regarded as severe as those for felonies, all criminal cases can have a dramatic impact on the individual charged.
