How Serious are Felony Charges?

There are four classifications of felonies in the State of Utah. 

Capital Felonies = punishable with life in prison, without the possibility of parole, or the death penalty. 

1st degree felonies = punishable by five years to life in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.  

2nd degree felonies = punishable by one to fifteen years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. 

3rd degree felony = punishable by zero to five years in State Prison.  Just because a  third degree felony sentencing range starts with a zero doesn't mean  that jail time can be avoided.  Instead, it means that the sentence can  be served in a local county jail instead of in prison.
