A felony is a serious crime that may be punishable by a minimum of one (1) year in jail and a maximum of life in prison. According to the legal dictionary, a felony is "a crime sufficiently serious to be punishable by death or a term in state or federal prison, as distinguished from a misdemeanor which is only punishable by confinement to county or local jail and/or a fine." The distinction between a misdemeanor and a felony is not always clear.
