Crimes can either be classified as misdemeanors or felonies. Felonies are the most serious types of crimes, and as such, carry the strictest penalties, including hefty fines and lengthy prison sentences. The punishment in question is dependent on the type and severity of the offense. However, in addition to criminal penalties, individuals convicted of a felony may experience other consequences that can negatively impact them for the rest of their lives, such as losing their current job, being denied future employment, or the inability to purchase a firearm.
