The Classifications of Felony Charges in Cortland and NY State

Most states categorize felonies into five classes or levels: Class A or Class 1 to Class E or Class 5. Some states don’t have subcategories and just have misdemeanor or felonies. In New York, there are six classes of felonies: Class A-I, Class A-ll, Class B, Class C, Class D and Class E.

The crime laws in New York are further complicated with two types of sentences – indeterminate and determinate. An indeterminate sentence is often for non-violent offenses and has a minimum and maximum number of years in prison. (For Class A felony convictions, there are only indeterminate sentences.) A determinate sentence is for violent crimes and drug-related crimes and imposes a set number of years in prison.

Below are the indeterminate sentences for felonies in New York.

  • Class A-I – 15 to 40 years in prison, or up to life in prison
