In the state of Arizona, a felony is a crime that is punishable by at least 1 year in prison. Misdemeanors, which are less serious are punishable by a max of 6 months in local or county jail. Class 1 felonies are the most serious of all crimes – exclusively limited to first and second degree murder.

 

Other than these class 1 felonies cases, lawmakers in Arizona have set a standard presumptive sentence for each individual class of offense, and in many cases the defendant will simply be given the presumptive sentence. Arizona has also set aggravated and mitigated terms. Judges may sentence a defendant to the aggravated term sentence (which is more extended than the presumptive term) if the prosecutor is able to show the aggravating circumstances.
