Common Types of Felonies
Felonies encompass a wide range of serious crimes, each carrying significant penalties. Common felonies include violent crimes such as assault, battery, and homicide; drug-related offenses like trafficking and manufacturing; property crimes such as burglary and grand theft; white-collar crimes including fraud and embezzlement; and sex crimes. Firearms offenses, including illegal possession or use of a firearm during the commission of a crime, are also treated as felonies and carry severe penalties. Each type of felony requires a thorough understanding of the law and a strategic defense approach tailored to the specifics of the case.

Penalties for Felonies and Their Life-Altering Consequences


The penalties for felony convictions in Louisiana are harsh and life-altering. Beyond the immediate consequences of imprisonment and fines, a felony conviction can lead to a loss of civil rights, including the right to vote and own firearms. It can also result in significant barriers to employment, housing, and professional licensing, severely impacting your quality of life. Felony convictions remain on your permanent record, and while some may be eligible for expungement, the process is lengthy and not available for all crimes. The repercussions of a felony conviction extend far beyond the courtroom, affecting every aspect of your personal and professional life.
