    Answered . A fifth degree felony carries a maximum prison sentence of twelve months. If you were charged with a fourth degree felony the maximum would be eighteen months. Depending on your record, you may be a good candidate for community control (called “probation” when referring to misdemeanors). You should consult with an attorney, as you may have a defense.
