What are Washington's Classes of Felonies?

As mentioned before, felonies are serious offenses. However, there isn't just one category; Washington has 3 classifications, and a crime is designated into a class depending on how severe it is.

The classes of felonies in this state include:

  • Class A: This is the highest classification and carries the most severe penalties.
  • Class B: Although not considered quite as high as class A, these are still serious offenses.
  • Class C: These are considered less serious than classes A and B.

No matter the classification of offense you've been charged with, our team will provide effective defense. Throughout our years of practice, which includes experience as former prosecutors, we have handled challenging cases, and we know how to present compelling strategies for our clients. Tell us the details of your situation, and we'll help you understand your legal options and will deliver sound advice so you can make informed decisions about how to proceed.

What Are the Punishments for Felony Convictions?

Because there are a number of different felony crimes, and every case is different, the punishments for being found guilty will vary.

In general, the maximum penalties are as follows:

  • Class A: Life in prison and/or $50,000 in fines
  • Class B: 10 years in prison and/or up to $20,000 in fines
  • Class C: 5 years in prison and/or up to $10,000 in fines

Beyond incarceration and fines, a felony charge can have long-term collateral consequences. For instance, you will lose certain rights, such as that to own or possess a firearm. You may also be disqualified for certain government benefits and have difficulty finding a job. These consequences can make it challenging to re-adjust to society after your release from prison.
