What’s The Point If You Don’t Know the Score? Felony Consequences of Misdemeanor Convictions

Misdemeanor convictions have real consequences in felony courts. Some crimes are felonies when a client has certain prior misdemeanor convictions. Many felony sentencing ranges are affected by prior or pending misdemeanors. Attorneys who primarily handle misdemeanor cases in Courts of Limited Jurisdiction must advise clients about these collateral consequences and therefore must be familiar with these aspects of the Sentencing Reform Act, including calculating Felony Offender Scoring, “points,” and ranges.

This webinar is a continuation of our felony sentencing series, which includes Felony 101, Felony 102 and Investigating and Litigating Mitigation and Exceptional Sentences Down.
