The Introduction of the Class D Felony

March 11, 2016

As of January 30, 2016, Alabama has introduced a Class D Felony.  It carries a penalty of not more than five years or less than one year and a day. The offenses that are considered Class D Felonies are as follows: Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st(personal use), Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, Theft of Property 3rd, Theft of Services 3rd, Receiving Stolen Property 3rd, Theft of Lost Property 3rd, Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument 3rd, Forgery 3rd, and Illegal Possession/Fraudulent Use of a Credit/Debit Card.  A Class D Felony provides less jail time and fewer enhancement possibilities for the accused.  If you are charged with a Class D Felony, Hodges Trial Lawyers can evaluate your case and offer legal advice.
