Classifying Felony Charges

Felony charges are serious, and they almost always come with more severe penalties than misdemeanors do. Prosecutors in the Detroit Metro Area tend to be very aggressive when pursuing these cases.

There are eight different classes of felonies. The class of felony you are charged with will affect how it is prosecuted and what the penalties of conviction will be. Factors that often affect the class of a felony include the amount and/or value of items involved (cash, drugs, etc.), whether or not minors are involved, and whether or not anyone was injured or killed during the alleged incident.

The felony classes in Michigan are:

  • Class A: The most severe class, includes cases of first- and second-degree murder, and conviction can result in life in prison
  • Class B: Includes cases of arson, child abuse, and child pornography, and penalties of up to 20 years in jail
  • Class C: Includes cases of robbery and manslaughter, and penalties of up to 15 years of jail time
  • Class D: Includes cases of human trafficking and some white-collar crimes, such as embezzlement, and penalties of jail time up to 15 years
  • Class E: Includes specific weapons charges and crimes such as home invasion, with penalties of up to 5 years in jail
  • Class F: Includes many marijuana crimes and fraud crimes, with penalties including jail time of up to four years
  • Class G: Includes cases of domestic violence, and can result in penalties of up to two years in jail
  • Class H: Includes some fraud crimes, such as using a stolen ID card, and penalties can range from jail time to probation
