Clarksville Felony Attorney
Charged with a felony in Clarksville, TN?
Any crime is considered serious, but in cases of charges being filed and the potential penalties, felonies are significantly dangerous than misdemeanors. A misdemeanor is a crime punishable by up to one year in jail, whereas a felony is a crime punishable by more than a year, and often multiple years, and the sentence is usually served in state prison.
Depending on the severity of the crime and the defendant's prior criminal record, life imprisonment is also a possibility for certain felony convictions.
If you or a loved you have been charged with committing a felony, you need to contact a Clarksville felonies attorney at Grimes, Sensing & Clemons PLLC immediately in order to schedule a confidential consultation and review of your case.
