Fighting back against Racial Profiling

Anthony Hernandez was arrested and spent a month in custody because of racial profiling and presumptions by the arresting officer. It might have been far worse had it not been for the persistence of his defense attorney, who kept demanding that prosecutors turn over body camera footage of the incident from the arresting officer. Once the officer turned it over to the prosecutor’s office, almost immediately the Sacramento DA dropped the charges. The Vanguard speaks to Attorney Jennifer Mouzis about the arrest and the illegal activities of the Sacramento Police.

Felonies

Felonies Attorney in Sacramento, CA

Felony charges are no minor matter. If you’re facing felony charges in the state of California, you may be frightened and unsure of what to do next.

You probably already know that being convicted of a California felony will have consequences that will change your life. What you may not know is that being convicted of a felony is punishable by at least a formal probation and, at worst, sixteen months to life in a state prison.

There are also other consequences associated with a felony conviction, including:

  • a mark on your permanent record
  • possible loss of employment
  • loss of a professional or business license
  • the inability to travel across state lines or out of the country
  • being stripped of the right to bear arms
  • deportation if you are not a citizen of the United States

Felony Charges

Just because the charges against you are serious, it doesn’t mean that there will be sufficient evidence against you to convict you of the charges, or that there will not have been a mistake during the arrest or investigations process that could potentially be grounds for acquittal.

Many crimes in California can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor based on the situation and circumstances involved, including but not limited to:

  • certain drug crimes
  • embezzlement
  • domestic violence
  • assault
  • battery
  • vandalism
  • fraud

What Is The Difference Between A Misdemeanor And A Felony?

There are key differences between a misdemeanor and a felony in the judicial system.

A misdemeanor is a minor criminal offense, whereas a felony is a much more serious, usually violent, criminal offense.

Examples of felony violations include:felony violations

  • murder
  • possession of dangerous drugs for sale
  • robberyrape

Examples of misdemeanor violations are:

  • petty theft
  • driving on a suspended license and drunk driving

The essential difference is the severity of punishment.

A felony conviction can lead you in state prison, but a misdemeanor will only have you do time in the local or country jail. A felony can involve a fine up to $10,000 and a sentence of up to life in prison or even the death sentence for special circumstance murder. A misdemeanor is generally punishable by a $1,000 fine and a maximum of one year in count jail.

In addition to the longer punishment, a person convicted of a felony: loses the right to vote, cannot possess firearms, cannot obtain certain licenses, such as a hunting or a fishing license and is also required to disclose a conviction when applying for jobs.
