Felony crimes are serious criminal offenses, punishable by imprisonment in a state prison. Felonies involving violence, force, threats, weapons and gang crimes are generally “strikes” under California’s ìthree strikes law”, and can have drastic ramifications on a person’s future.
Convicted felons face a lifetime of negative consequences, including being barred from obtaining certain professional licenses, working in certain fields of employment and owning a firearm. Employers are generally reluctant to hire someone convicted of a felony.
