A felony is the most serious type of criminal offense that a person can commit. In Tennessee, a felony offense is punishable by a minimum of 1 year in state prison all the way up to life imprisonment or even the death penalty. Depending upon the classification of the felony offense for which you are facing criminal charges, you may be facing years of imprisonment, heavy fines, probation, sex offender registration and much more. You may also risk losing your professional license as an attorney, doctor, teacher or other professional if you are convicted.
