In Michigan and throughout the United States, felonies are classified as the most serious crimes, while smaller crimes are considered misdemeanors. Unfortunately, felony convictions are often life-altering events, resulting in lengthy prison sentences, expensive fines, and a permanent mark on your criminal record which can hinder employment opportunities.
