Assignment module 3 by Shtabina A. Chapter 5 Q. 1 p.115 Crimes are classified according to the gravity of the offense. We can subdivide all types of the crimes into two large groups: felonies and misdemeanors. Felony is serious offense that is generally punishable by confinement in a penitentiary for substantial periods of time (Textbook p.102) Actually, felonies are the most serious kind of crime and are often classified by degrees, with a first degree felony being the most serious. Felonies frequently involve serious physical harm (or threat of harm) to victims such as murder, rape, and arson, but they also include offenses like white collar crimes and fraud schemes. Felonies are punishable by substantial fines and prison sentences in excess of one year. Conviction of a felony brings with it more disadvantages than just higher fines and longer jail time. In some states, persons convicted of felonies cannot serve on juries or purchase or possess firearms and may not be employed in certain professions, such as law, teaching, or the military.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
