Class C Felonies are serious charges that carry a big sentence.
If you’re a first offender charged with a Class C felony that isn’t a violent crime or drug-related, you’ll serve a minimum of one year – but up to 15 years!
Factor in violence or drugs and your minimum sentence rises to three and a half years, and if you’re a repeat offender with violence or drugs as part of the charge, you’ll serve at least seven years behind bars. http://www.queenscriminalattorneys.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=category
Felony charges at any level in New York are extremely serious, but when you’re risking as long as fifteen years of your life, you can’t afford anything but the best defense.
