Depending on the nature of a crime, charges may be brought under state law, under federal law, or sometimes both. However, most criminal matters are charged and prosecuted under state law, with charges being brought by the district attorney for the county in which the crime was committed. State crimes are charged as felonies or misdemeanors; felonies are more serious and carry heavier penalties, but a person convicted of a misdemeanor may still be sentenced to up to a year in jail.
Whether you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor, a conviction in New York can have a profound impact on your life, limiting your ability to find work, access certain government privileges and benefits, and of course, potentially costing you your freedom.
