Defending Against Felony and Misdemeanor Charges in Minneapolis and Saint Paul

In Minnesota, a criminal offense can be charged as a felony or misdemeanor in state or federal court. Many factors influence whether prosecutors will pursue felony or misdemeanor charges. Our lawyers have extensive experience defending individuals in federal and state court accused of committing a wide range of offenses, including:

  • White collar crimes
  • Computer crimes
  • Violent crimes
  • Drug offenses
  • Drunk driving offenses
  • Sex crimes

Many criminal charges are prosecuted in federal court if committed over state boundaries or on American Indian reservations. The penalties for misdemeanor and felony offenses vary greatly. Misdemeanor offenses carry a maximum sentence of up to 90 days in jail and a maximum fine of $1,000. Common misdemeanors in Minnesota include traffic violations, first-offense DUI charges, drug possession and shoplifting. If a suspect has a prior record, prosecutors may pursue felony charges.

In Minnesota, felonies can be punishable by any term of imprisonment, including up to life in prison. A felony conviction also carries the loss of certain civil rights, including the right to hold office, vote, serve on a jury or possess a firearm. Common felonies in Minnesota include murder, manslaughter, sexual assault, kidnapping and theft of property worth $1,000 or more.
