Being charged with a felony is a serious offense, but it doesn’t have to end your life. Most crimes are classified as either felonies or misdemeanors, and even a simple misdemeanor could be elevated to felony level based on various factors. If the crime would be a misdemeanor, but the individual charged is a repeat offender, it’s possible there are legislative guidelines in place that require the individual be charged with a felony. Felonies also cover nearly all violent crimes in Wilmington, as well as many drug crimes when the amount of drug is above a certain threshold.
