Misdemeanor or Felony?

Whether a crime is classified as a felony or misdemeanor is usually determined by the implied punishment. Sentencing of one year or more in prison is reserved for felony charges, while jail time of a year or less defines a misdemeanor. Some crimes may be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the circumstances of the crime or whether it was a repeat offense.

Felony in Michigan

Felonies are punishable under both state and federal law; a felony is a serious offense punishable by imprisonment for more than a year. There is no death penalty in Michigan, and the maximum sentence for a felony is life imprisonment. Crimes that are generally classified as felonies include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sex Offenses Vehicle Manslaughter
  • Felony DUI / OWI Voluntary / Involuntary Manslaughter Aggravated Assault Homicide
