What are the differences between a misdemeanor and felony?

If you have been charged with a crime in Illinois, the severity of the consequences you may face will often depend on if you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Generally, more serious crimes are classified as felonies, which carry the most serious penalties, while less severe crimes are classified as misdemeanors, which typically result in less significant consequences. A criminal defense attorney can give you the best chance at avoiding a criminal conviction by helping you come up with an effective defense strategy.
