In Missouri, as in most states, felonies are serious crimes that carry a potential punishment of more than a year in prison. In contrast, misdemeanors in Missouri may be punished by no more than a year in county jail.

For purposes of sentencing, Missouri categorizes felonies into five classes, with Class A as the most serious and Class E as the least serious. But the class of felony isn't the only thing that determines the sentence you'll receive if you're convicted. Other factors could increase or reduce your sentence, including your criminal history and the circumstances surrounding the crime. Read on for details.

If a jury has convicted you of a felony, there will be a separate phase of the trial for sentencing. After hearing evidence—on issues such as the impact of the crime on the victim, the circumstances of the crime, and your history and character—the jury will decide on a sentence within the legal limits for your crime. However, Missouri courts have held that the jury's decision is really only a recommendation for the judge. And the sentencing decision will be solely up to the judge in many circumstances, including when you've pleaded guilty, asked to have the judge issue the sentence, or have the kind of criminal history that calls for an enhanced sentence (as discussed below). (Mo. Rev. Stat. § 557.036 (2020); State v. Van Horn, 625 S.W.2d 874 (Mo. Sup. Ct. 1981).

Missouri has sentencing guidelines that include recommended sentences based on things like your criminal record, age, education, employment status, and history of substance abuse. But judges or juries don't have to follow the guidelines.

When seeking employment the application will most likely ask if you have been convicted of a crime. Even if you were convicted of a felony 20 years ago you will still need to disclose the conviction. If you are too embarrassed to disclose the conviction there is a good chance the business will also run a criminal background check before employing you. If you have a felony on your record it is likely the business will choose a prospect with similar skills that does not have a felony conviction. A felony can haunt you for the rest of your career.

If you complete your probation or parole sentence it is possible some of your rights may be restored. It is also possible in some cases to have your felony expunged needless to say it is better to never be convicted of the felony. If you have been charged it is very important that you contact Ryan Krupp to talk about your case. There is a famous quote by Charlie Munger that goes "An once of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure."

Felonies in Missouri range from Class A, the most serious offenses, to Class E, the least serious offenses. On this page, you will find extensive information about each felony class.
