What Are the Potential Conviction Penalties?
In Alabama, criminal offenses are categorized as violations, misdemeanors, and felonies. The potential conviction penalties you or your loved one could be facing depend on the level and type of charge. For instance, sexual misconduct, which involves having sex or sexual contact with someone without their consent, could result in up to a year in jail. Third-degree robbery, taking another person's property by use of force, could result in a prison term of up to 10 years.
The state has various classifications of misdemeanors and felonies, and the potential incarceration sentences for each are as follows:
- Class A misdemeanor: Up to 1 year in jail
- Class B misdemeanor: Up to 6 months in jail
- Class C misdemeanor: Up to 3 months in jail
- Class A felony: Up to 99 years or life in prison
- Class B felony: Up to 20 years in prison
- Class C felony: Up to 10 years in prison
- Class D felony: Up to 5 years in prison
Beyond imprisonment, a conviction for certain offenses could result in other consequences. For instance, being found guilty of a sex crime could require mandatory sex offender registration. If you're a college or university student, a conviction could limit your ability to qualify for government financial aid. For example, if you were found guilty of a drug crime, your award could be suspended, and if the offense happened when you applied for aid, you may be required to pay back the total amount of what you received.
