Penalties for Criminal Offenses in Indiana

Felony crimes in Indiana are classified into 6 levels. A level 6 felony is the least serious, while a level 1 is the most serious. The penalties for a level 6 felony can range from 6 months to 2 and a half years of imprisonment and fines of up to $10,000. Level 1 felonies carry sentences of 20 to 40 years of imprisonment and no more than $10,000 in fines. 

There are three classes of misdemeanor crimes in Indiana: “A,” “B,” and “C.” Class C misdemeanors are the lowest level offenses, and class A misdemeanors are the highest. While these crimes are less serious in the eyes of the law, their penalties are still significant. A conviction for a class C misdemeanor could come with a sentence of up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. For a class A misdemeanor, the penalties include up to a year in jail and a fine that could total $5,000. 

What Is a “Wobbler” Crime?

Certain Indiana crimes are “wobblers.” The prosecution can pursue either misdemeanor or felony charges for these crimes, depending on the circumstances of the alleged crime and the defendant’s criminal history. Most level 6 felonies in Indiana are wobbler offenses. 

Arrested in Cass County? Here Is What to Do.  

If Indiana law enforcement has arrested you, you might feel frightened and uncertain. In these critical moments, it is important to remain calm and act with care. What you say and do during and after an arrest could be part of the prosecution’s case against you. Below, we have offered four things to be sure to do. 

If you have been arrested, you should:

  • Remain silent. This is your right. You do not have to speak to the arresting officer or any other law enforcement member. Additionally, you should refrain from discussing your case with anyone who is not your attorney. 
  • Not consent to a search. The police may ask to search your home, car, or other property. Unless they have a warrant or probable cause, they do not have the right to do so. 
  • Not resist arrest. Even if you are innocent, avoid saying or doing anything to attempt to stop the arrest. 
  • Ask for a lawyer. Be sure to make this request right away. An attorney like ours at The Law Office of Andrew Achey can provide essential counsel as you go through the early parts of the criminal process and long after.
