Anyone who is accused of a felony crime, especially offenses that are violent in nature, face very serious consequences if they are convicted. Hefty fines, lengthy prison sentences, extended periods of probation – all are possible in a felony case. The reality of these penalties means that if you are accused of a felony crime, you deserve a thorough and compliant investigation, a legal representative to defend your case, and a fair trial that is not tainted by illegal means.
No one knows this more than a 25-year-old man who went on a crime spree across Charlotte, North Carolina in 2008. The case against him included gun charges, robbery, conspiracy, assault and homicide. He could have been given the death penalty but the 25-year-old pleaded guilty to the charges, leaving him with a life sentence in jail.
