What Makes A Crime A Felony?
Basically, misdemeanors and felonies are the two main types of criminal charges that a person can face. Most types of crimes can be misdemeanors or felonies. Factors like the severity of the crime and repeat offenses can make it a felony. Further, there are aggravating factors like use of force or a violent weapon being used in the commission of a crime that can transform a crime that would otherwise be a misdemeanor into a felony.
