Defending against a Wide Range of Felony Charges

Connecticut law classifies many different criminal offenses as felonies. In addition, aggravating factors can enhance a misdemeanor charge to a felony charge. Some aggravating factors include prior convictions, causing harm to others, using a deadly weapon, and more. Each felony case requires extensive attention to detail and a full analysis of all possible defenses. Our firm regularly handles the following types of felony cases, among others:

Potential Penalties for Felony Offenses in Connecticut

Felony convictions can mean a variety of serious and lasting consequences. The following are some possible court-imposed sentences for different degrees of felony convictions in Connecticut:

As you can see, the range of possible prison sentences is substantial, leaving the court with wide discretion when determining the length of a term in state prison. In addition, a court can opt to sentence a defendant to probation instead of jail time.  In limited circumstances, an attorney may even be able to convince a prosecutor and/or judge that you should be able to use a special program and avoid a felony conviction altogether.

So how can you receive a probation sentence or no conviction at all instead of ten years or more behind bars for a felony conviction? The difference often depends on the quality of your defense representation. The right attorney can present defenses, argue to suppress evidence, negotiate with prosecutors, and use any tactics relevant to your case to try to obtain a reduced charge or sentence whenever possible. We evaluate each case on an individual basis to design the best possible defense strategy. Please don’t wait any longer to discuss your case with a member of our legal team.

Collateral Consequences of Felony Convictions

As if paying overwhelming fines and serving a long term of strict probation or prison time isn’t bad enough, any felony conviction can make the rest of your life difficult. There are many situations in which a felony on your criminal record can hinder your opportunities or reputation. Such situations include:

The above consequences are why the legal team at Duffy Law works to avoid a conviction whenever we can.
