Felony Cases in the State of Hawaii
Have You Been Accused of a Felony Crime in Hawaii?
A Few Years in Prison May Be the Least of Your Worries
Accusations of a felony crime have left you and your family devastated. The news may be so fresh that you cannot even begin to piece your life back together. You know only that the State of Hawaii has you in its crosshairs. And sooner or later, your case will be taken to court, with all the evidence, witness testimony, and forensic expertise the state can muster against you.
Now is not the time to sit idle. The coming days and weeks are more important to your future than you can imagine. The stakes are incredibly high. The risks this felony poses to your future are too great to ignore.
All of this may seem unreal to you now. But within the next few months, if convicted, you could face:
- A prison sentence that could extend out for years, if not decades.
- The fines and fees associated with a guilty verdict could leave you in debt up to $50,000. But these fines do not come close to the opportunities lost over your life. As a felon, you will remain unemployable by a large swathe of the business community.
- As a convicted felon, you risk becoming a pariah, thrown out of communities you’ve been a part of for years. This will only hit home when the people you love disappear from your life, an unthinkable situation which cannot come to pass.
A felony conviction has the potential to ruin your life. If you’ve been accused of a felony offense in Hawaii, contact Bilecki & Tipon immediately for a confidential consultation into your case.
Class A, B, and C Felonies in Hawaii: What Are They?
In Hawaii, felony offenses are broken down into three categories, defined by the state as Class A, Class B, and Class C. Every felony falls into one of these categories, with Class A being the most severe felony crimes, and Class C pertaining to the lesser felony offenses.
Class A Felonies include crimes such as murder, kidnapping, drug crimes, rape and arson. Sentencing for Class A felonies may include a 20-year open term in confinement or in some cases up to life in prison. Fines can reach up to $50,000, and may go beyond that for multiple counts of the same crime.
Class B Felonies include crimes such as sexual assault (2nd degree), burglary, robbery, and financial fraud among others. Class B felonies incur sentencing that is less severe than Class A felonies, but more severe than Class C felonies. A class B Felony may be punishable by up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $25,000.
Class C Felonies are the least serious felony crimes. Examples can include lower forms of theft, fraud, as well as obstruction of justice and damage to another person’s property. Class C felonies may be punishable by up to a 5-year maximum prison sentence and no more than $10,000 in fines.
