Felony Sentencing Ranges
In Missouri, there are four main felony classes and possible sentencing ranges for each class as listed below. Additionally, there are a number of charges that are deemed ‘unclassified’ felonies. The ranges for these types of charges can vary, but all have mandatory minimum sentences starting at three years. As some felonies require 85% of the sentence to be served before parole, any felony is extremely serious. Your record can also make a difference as Missouri can seek to designate you as a prior and persistent offender. This label can cause you to serve more time in prison or can enhance the punishment range if you are convicted. If you are accused of a felony, do not wait to get a lawyer.
