Posted 6 years ago by Detroit Bail Bonds

Virtually all of the crimes committed in Michigan have a different background story, a different cause, a different result. For that reason, sentences depend on many variables, including the arguments made by experienced attorneys. Still, for the purpose of simplifying court processes, felonies in Michigan are broken down into classes. We’ve discussed Class A Felonies in past blogs, and now we’re presenting the basics you might want to know about Class B Felonies.

What are Class B Felonies?

Class B Felonies are generally punishable by up to 20 years in prison, but sentencing ranges could increase for repeat offenders or due to other factors that were involved. An attempted Class B Felony would be considered a Class E offense for legal purposes.
