A felony is a crime punishable by imprisonment for more than one year. A felony conviction on your record can not only affect job prospects but it will also affect your right to vote and your right to carry a gun. Many felonies also carry stiff mandatory minimum sentences.
In Georgia, misdemeanors are crimes that are punishable by a sentence of up to 12 months in the county jail and up to a $1,000 fine. Driving under the influence (DUI) is a misdemeanor which, if convicted, can result in the suspension of your license.
