A “felony” is a “serious” criminal offense.  As such, a felony has severe criminal penalties.  In Wisconsin, the penalties include incarceration in a state prison and/or a monetary fine.  A felony conviction results in the loss of important civil rights, including, but not limited to, the right to vote and the right to bear arms.  A felony conviction permanently bars a person from possessing a firearm.  A felony conviction may also significantly and severely impact a person’s immigration status (applies to non-US citizens).

There are nine classes of felonies, ranging from Class AClass I.

For Class A, the penalty is life in prison.

For Class B, the penalty is up to 60 years in prison.

For Class C, the penalties are up to 40 years in prison and/or a fine up to $100,000.

For Class D, the penalties are up to 25 years in prison and/or a fine up to $100,000.

For Class E, the penalties are up to 15 years in prison and/or a fine up to $50,000.

For Class F, the penalties are up to 12 ½ years in prison and/or a fine up $25,000.

For Class G, the penalties are up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine up to $25,000.

For Class H, the penalties are up to 6 years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000.

For Class I, the penalties are up to 3 ½ years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000.

There are various felony offenses with which you may be charged.  As indicated above, a ClassA felony is the most severe; its penalty is life in prison.  First Degree Intentional Homicide is a Class A felony.  A Class I felony is the least severe; its penalties are up to 3 ½ years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000.  Substantial Battery is one type of Class I felony.  The more serious a felony offense is considered to be, the higher the penalties a person faces.
