Felony Charges

blank

A felony is a crime that carries a possible punishment of more than one year of incarceration. Felonies in Idaho include some DUI and drug charges; aggravated assault and battery; homicide; sexual crimes such as rape or lewd and lascivious conduct; burglary; theft; embezzlement; etc. 

 

A felony charge can impact your life in countless ways. It can result in incarceration. It can result in fines, court costs and attorney fees. It can result in job loss. It can result in drivers license suspension. It can result in probation or specialty courts. 

 

At Cannon Law, we pride ourselves in helping you throughout the process. We will listen to you to know what is important to you. Then, we will fight hard to achieve a successful result. We will guide you to understand how the court system works.

Misdemeanor Charges

A misdemeanor charge is one that carries a possible punishment of incarceration, but for no longer than a year.

 

Misdemeanors in Idaho include some DUI and drug charges; simple assault and/or battery; some sex crimes; and petit theft, disturbing the peace, etc.

 

Like felony charges, misdemeanors impact lives in many ways. They can result in incarceration. They can result in fines and court costs.

 

They can lead to job loss and drivers license suspension. They can result in probation or participation in specialty court.

 

Furthermore, the court system can be just as confusing for misdemeanor charges as it is for felonies. 

 

At Cannon Law, we will take your misdemeanor charge seriously. We will guide you through the court process.

 

We will explain your rights to you. We will identify your defenses and fight hard to achieve a positive result for you.

Juvenile Law and charges

When a child under 18 years old engages in conduct that would be a misdemeanor or a felony or, charges can be brought under the Juvenile Corrections Act. The juvenile justice system in Idaho is similar to the criminal justice system. Like adults, juveniles can be placed on probation. 

 

When it comes to incarceration, however, juveniles who are found guilty of committing offenses are sent to detention (not jail) and/or committed to the Department of Juvenile Corrections (not the Idaho Department of Corrections). 

 

Juvenile charges, like criminal charges in the adult criminal justice system, can impact one’s life in countless ways.

 

A juvenile can be held in custody. A juvenile can be placed on probation. A juvenile can have a record which can close doors of opportunity for a lifetime. The juvenile court system can be just as confusing as is adult court for misdemeanor charges and felonies.

 

At Cannon Law, we will take your juvenile charge seriously. We will guide you through the court process. We will explain your rights to you. We will identify your defenses and fight hard to achieve a positive result for you.

 

At Cannon law, our many years of experience and our know-how prepare us to negotiate a successful plea agreement for you. And, when a plea deal is not in the cards, we will fight hard and smart in presenting your case to the court with the aim of acquittal!
