Felony Charges

Philadelphia Felony Charges

When you have been charged with having committed a felony, it is essential that you have legal representation by an experienced, competent attorney who understands the seriousness of the charges you face. The professionals from The Law Office of Erik B. Jensen have extensive knowledge of the criminal defense system, and will work tirelessly to ensure that we provide you with a strong defense.

Being charged with a felony can result in long period of incarceration, substantial fines and penalties, the inability to get a job in the future, and even the loss of your right to vote. In the United States you are innocent until proven guilty, and that is the way that we view our clients. No matter what the crime that you have been accused of, we believe that you are entitled to a vigorous defense, and that is what we provide. From the moment that you contact us throughout the entire criminal process, we will be there by your side to protect your rights and make sure that you understand exactly what is happening at every step along the way.

Being charged with a felony is different from being charged with a misdemeanor offense. Felonies can be broken down into three different categories based upon the severity of the crime, but all are considered serious. The least severe felony charge still carries a sentence of no more than seven years in prison and up to $15,000 in fines, while the most severe carries prison terms of up to twenty years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines. Felony crimes can include:

  • Rape
  • Murder
  • Assault and battery
  • Drug crimes
  • Armed robbery
  • Arson endangering persons
  • Kidnapping
  • Statutory sexual assault
  • Indecent assault
  • Burglary
  • Terroristic threats
  • Carrying a gun without a permit

When you work with The Law Office of Erik B. Jensen, you can be certain that we will be meticulous in the work that we do to provide you with a robust defense. We will begin by thoroughly investing the facts surrounding your case, looking closely at the evidence and statements provided by police and law enforcement. We will ensure that your rights have been upheld and protected throughout the investigative and arrest process, and seek action in those cases where it has not, working to get the charges against you dismissed or reduced. Beyond that effort, we will gather all of the evidence necessary to mount a vigorous defense that puts you in the best possible position to introduce reasonable doubt as to whether you committed the crime you are charged with.
