The Differences Between Misdemeanor And Felony Charges
In Arizona, to be charged with endangerment as a Class 6 felony, the allegation must involve a substantial risk of imminent death. As a Class 1 misdemeanor, there only needs to be an allegation that the person recklessly endangered another person with a substantial risk of physical injury.
If charged as a Class 6 felony non-dangerous offense, you could face a prison term of .5 to 1.5 years with probation eligible as a first offense, 1 year to 2.25 years with one historical prior, and 3 to 4.5 years with two historical priors.
If charged as a Class 6 felony dangerous offense, you could face a jail term of 1.5 to three years as a first offense, three to 4.5 years with one historical dangerous prior and 4.5 to six years with two historical priors.
If charged as a Class 1 misdemeanor, you could be facing up to six months in jail, three years of probation, and steep fines.
