Felonies in New York

As mentioned above, the most serious crimes in New York are considered felony offenses. A felony conviction can be punishable by a state prison sentence ranging from one year to lifetime imprisonment or in some instances, a county or local jail term of less than one year similar to a misdemeanor conviction.

Prison sentences for non-violent felonies are generally indeterminate terms in which the sentence includes a minimum and maximum period of incarceration. Prison sentences for violent felonies are generally determinate terms in which a sentence is for a specific period of time.

Felonies are also punishable by fines and sometimes restitution to the victims of the offense. In lieu of imprisonment, a judge may sentence a defendant to probation or conditional discharge.
