Classifying Felony Crimes

Some crimes are always charged as felonies in the state of California; other crimes that are typically charged as misdemeanors may be charged as felonies if certain aggravating factors are present. The former are known as “straight” felonies, whereas the latter are known as “wobblers.”

Legally, a “felony crime” in California is one that is punishable by a maximum sentence of more than one year (12 months) in jail or state prison.

Some examples of common straight felonies in California include:

Meanwhile, wobbler felonies, or crimes that can be upgraded to felonies depending on the circumstances involved, include but are not limited to:

When Is a Criminal Charge Upgraded to a Felony?

In the case of wobbler felonies, certain factors are taken into account in order to determine whether the offense will be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or felony.

These factors may include:

  • The criminal history of the alleged offender
  • The age of the alleged offender
  • The nature of the offense
  • Whether a weapon was allegedly used in the commission of the crime
  • The potential for future criminal behavior
  • The level of cooperation with law enforcement
  • The overall strength of the case

If, for example, you are arrested for burglary of an uninhabited building, but you have a history of prior convictions for similar offenses, you may face felony burglary charges. As a result, you will also face harsher penalties.
