Applying Experience To Your Defense
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 in federal and state court defending individuals accused of committing a wide range of offenses, including:
Many crimes thought to have been committed over state boundaries or on American Indian reservations are prosecuted in federal court. 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 use and possession, and shoplifting. If a suspect has a record, prosecutors may pursue felony charges.
In Minnesota, felonies can be punishable by any term of imprisonment, including up to life. 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.
