A felony is any crime punishable by a year or more of incarceration. But jail or prison is just the tip of the iceberg. You can forfeit civil liberties such as the right to vote or possess firearms. A felony conviction may impact employment, professional licenses, military service and other facets of your life.

It is critical that your Lincoln felony attorney understands these rights and uses them to your advantage. For example, in state felony cases defendants have the right to a preliminary hearing and may also depose witnesses prior to trial. These opportunities must not be taken lightly. Cases can be won and lost long before trial at depositions and pretrial hearings.
