Felony criminal charges are the most serious in the state of California and bring serious consequences for those convicted. While it is possible to avoid jail time when convicted of a felony, you will most likely serve at least some time behind bars, and possibly many years depending on the charges. No felony charge can be taken lightly, because it will have a long lasting and far reaching affect on your life. Call Somera Law Group today to discuss any felony charge you may be facing.
