Felony crimes are criminal offenses that are of a more serious nature than that of a misdemeanor crime. In most cases that involves sentencing that includes incarceration, the convicted party will serve his or her term of incarceration in state or federal prison depending on the type of crime and seriousness of the events of the crime. Depending on the specific felony crime an individual is convicted of the sentencing guidelines for incarceration may range from 1 year in prison to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. In capital felony convictions, the possibility of the death penalty may or may not be applicable as a conviction penalty.
