Felonies encompass the more serious offenses, such as robberies and homicides.
Other offenses –such as thefts, for example – may be treated as felonies if the amount at issue is over a certain value. Punishment of a felony is generally more severe than that for a misdemeanor. A felony conviction generally carries a custodial sentence in excess of 1 year. Moreover, a felony conviction is a permanent bar to firearms possession and has other collateral consequences. Juni S. Ganguli has represented hundreds of people charged with felonies, both in Tennessee and in Mississippi.
