Santa Barbara Felony Defense Lawyer
Charged with a felony offense? We have the tools to protect you!
Felony charges are prosecuted more severely than misdemeanors and can count
towards California's Three Strike's Law. Under the Three Strikes
Law, if you have two previous strikes against you and you commit a new
misdemeanor shoplifting offense, these could be upgraded to a felony,
forcing you to serve a 25-year to life sentence. There is a lot at stake
in felonies, so make sure that you understand what you are up against
by speaking with a knowledgeable
criminal defense attorney in Santa Barbara at
Appel & Morse.
Examples of charges that are commonly classified as felonies include:
Drug charges, including
possession, sales, manufacturing and
DUI charges, for repeat offenders or if serious bodily injuries to a victim result
Sex crimes, including sexual abuse, sexual assault and possession of child pornography.
Violent crimes, including burglary, armed robbery,
assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse and maltreatment, and grand theft
White collar crimes, including bribery,
