Common Types of Felony Crimes in Kansas

Understanding the nature of felony charges is crucial for anyone facing legal issues. In Kansas, various offenses are categorized as felonies, each with its consequences. Stolte Law, LLC is your ally in tackling a range of felony charges, including:

  • Drug Offenses: Navigating the intricacies of drug-related felonies demands astute legal representation. Stolte Law, LLC is experienced in handling cases involving drug possession, distribution, and manufacturing.

Sentencing in Felony Cases

In Kansas, the sentence for a felony case depends on two factors:

  • The defendant's criminal history score
  • The severity level of the crime

The criminal history score ranges from A to I, with a score of "A" having the most prior convictions. The severity of non-drug offenses ranges from 1 to 10, with "1" being the most severe. Drug crimes range from 1 to 5.

The Kansas Sentencing Guidelines have been charted to determine the length and type of sentence in most criminal cases. The location on the chart and the sentence in the case depend on the intersection of the criminal history score and the severity level of the offense. In off-grid felonies, such as DUI or murder, the terms of the sentence are found in the crime-specific statute.
