What are the consequences of a felony conviction?
Different felonies carry different maximum terms in state prison. Also, certain enhancements may be filed which can increase the punishment. Some enhancements will even deny probation to a person.
If a person is convicted of a felony, the consequences are most often more severe than those of a person convicted of a misdemeanor. Felony convictions usually carry more time in custody and the conditions of release are generally more restrictive. The conditions of custody are more often more severe. There are other consequences as well, such as not be allowed to vote, not serving on juries in some states, not being able to hold public office, not owning firearms and perhaps not serving in the military.
