Is robbery and aggravated assault a felony or is they misdemeanors ? Is it considered a violent crime in general ?
They are very serious felonies. You should consult with an attorney right away.
Are they different classes ?
Both roobery and aggravated assault are punishable by up to 20 years in prison. If the charge is armed robbery, then that is a more serious crime. Do you have a court date?
The person has already been to court.
They need to consult with their attorney to make sure they have all of the information regarding the charges in the case. Both charges are extremely serious. If the person does not have an attorney, I would recommend hiring one right away.
Lets say they were sentenced 10years but the judge and public defender said they would be eligible for parole in 4 years, is that possible with good behavior or not ? or is 4 years possible period.
Both are serious felonies with 1-20 year sentence range, and yes are considered violent.
Both are felonies. The sentence for both is 1 - 20 years. They are considered violent crimes. The parole board makes defendants serve 65 - 90% of their sentence before releasing them.
I am not your attorney nor is there an attorney-client relationship, even though I have answered your question here on Avvo.com.
Both are violent and both are very serious felony crimes.
