In Michigan and throughout the United States, felonies are classified as the most serious crimes, while smaller crimes are considered misdemeanors.

State Sentencing Guidelines

Felonies are categorized as belonging to one of six specific crime groups: crimes against a person, against property, involving an illegal drug or controlled substance, against public order, against public safety, and against public trust. Each crime group encompasses multiple offenses. Felonies are typically punishable by more than a year in prison, up to a life sentence.

The following are the Michigan sentencing guidelines:

  • Class A felony – Life imprisonment
  • Class B felony – Maximum prison sentence of 20 years
