Types of Charges for a Felony Bond
Unlike most other states, California defines explicit punishments for a great host of crimes. Typically, a state will categorize a felony into a class, from third to first degree, for which there exists a range of punishment options. California allows less discretion on the part of judges to define sentences, and instead gives them options between established standards. A huge range of punishment exists for felonies, from one year in jail, to life imprisonment or the death sentence. Common charges classified as felonies fall into a few different categories.
Violent Crimes: Many different crimes of violence are either always felonies, or “wobblers”, a term for crimes charged either as felonies or misdemeanors. Violent felonies include obvious crimes like murder and rape, along with lesser known offenses like threats to a witness and assault of a public official.
Drug Crimes: Generally speaking, any drug charge other than possession counts as a felony. These include sale of a controlled substance, along with the manufacture or transport of controlled substances.
Property Crimes: Some property crimes also rank as felonies. Grand theft, embezzlement, and fraud are included, along with the knowing receipt of stolen property.
A DUI is a wobbler not easily categorized. Typically, the first through third offenses get charged as misdemeanors, with additional DUIs considered felonies. However, the particular circumstances of a DUI, such as the injury of another person, can elevate even a first offense to a felony.
