Consequences Of A Felony Conviction In California

If you are convicted of a felony in the state of California, you will face incarceration in either state prison or county jail, or, in the worst cases, you may face the death penalty. California law is a bit complicated when it comes to sentencing individuals for crimes. In most cases, felony crimes in California come with one of three determinate, or base, sentences, depending on the specific crime committed.

In most cases, you will face either 16 months, two years or three years of incarceration for a felony crime. That being said, when a judge determines a base sentence in California, they will consider the circumstances surrounding your case, including whether there are any aggravating circumstances. If your case comes with certain aggravating circumstances, you may face additional years in prison based on the nature of your crime and your past criminal history. If you are charged with a particularly heinous crime, you may face anywhere from 25 years to life in prison.
