Lafayette Criminal Defense for Felonies

Level 1 felonies are the most serious felony charges and are punishable by 20 to 40 years imprisonment. Some Level 1 felonies are punishable by up to 50 years imprisonment. Level 6 Felonies are the lowest level felonies and are punishable by a range of penalties from 6 months to 30 months. In Indiana, felonies are also punishable by fines of up to $10,000, and a minimum sentence of one year. Each case is different.
