Penalties for Felony Crimes in Hawaii
As the most serious types of crimes, felonies can result in very harsh penalties. They can potentially result in years of prison time, thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines (depending on the offense), and even other more specific penalties such as the requirement to register as a sex offender. Once a person becomes a convicted felon, his or her record is extensively damaged, and it can become incredibly difficult to secure jobs, find adequate housing, and even qualify for loans in the future. All Felonies other than murder are classified as A, B or C Felonies:
Class A Felonies
- Includes: sexual battery against a young child, the highest drug trafficking offenses, kidnapping, rape and arson
- 25 years in prison to life
- A fine of up to $50,000
Class B Felonies
- Includes: assault that causes a serious injury, sexual assault, financial fraud, and manslaughter
- Up to 10 years in prison
- A fine of up to $25,000
- Includes: certain forms of theft, certain forms of fraud, assault and obstruction of justice
- Up to 5 years in prison
- A fine of up to $10,000
