Sentencing For Felonies In Ohio

A felony is the most severe kind of criminal charge in Ohio. Felony offenses are acts that the government considers especially harmful or dangerous. As such, these crimes receive some of the harshest punishments.

The categories of felonies and their penalties include:

  • First-degree felonies – up to a $20,000 fine and three to 11 years in prison
  • Second-degree felonies – up to a $15,000 fine and two to eight years in prison
  • Third-degree felonies – up to a $10,000 fine and nine months to three years in prison
  • Fourth-degree felonies – up to a $5,000 fine and six months to 18 months in prison
  • Fifth-degree felonies – up to a $2,500 fine and six months to one year in prison

In addition to heavy fines, a possible prison sentence and a criminal record, the consequences of a felony conviction may include loss of professional licenses, difficulty finding employment, and a revocation of fundamental rights, such as the right to hold public office or serve on a jury. Without an effective defense, a felony conviction could follow you for the rest of your life.
