Felonies

Felony charges are the most serious charges in Minnesota's criminal law system.  There are a number of things that go into determining whether or not a crime constitutes a felony, such as the seriousness of the offense, whether or not the suspect has any prior convictions, and the age of any victims.  

Felony charges in Minnesota can carry a wide array of potential punishments.  Jail sentences can range anywhere from 1 year and 1 day to life without parole.  Fines can rise as high as multiple 10's of thousands of dollars.  Probation terms can extend for a couple of years or for decades.  

Felony convictions can keep you from getting accepted to college, graduate school, or professional programs.  They can keep you from getting a job.  They can keep you from being allowed to rent an apartment.  The consequences of a felony conviction in MN extend far beyond the punishment handed down by the court.  

If you have been charged with a felony or are currently the subject of a felony investigation, obtaining quality legal counsel is of the utmost importance.  Call or email an attorney with The Law Office of Brodie Hacken today to ensure that you are taken care of in this trying time.
