What Are Felonies in Mississippi?

Mississippi criminal statutes do not classify felonies into categories; instead, felonies are listed individually, with each crime having its own potential punishment(s) and penalties.  A felony crime will list state prison as a possible penalty whether or not the statute specifically states the crime is a felony.

Examples of felonies in Mississippi are:

  • Murder;
  • Arson;
  • Burglary;
  • Rape;
  • Larceny;
  • Manslaughter; and
  • Embezzlement.

Consequences of Felonies in Mississippi

In Mississippi, a felony conviction becomes part of your permanent criminal record, and previous felony convictions can enhance the sentences for any new crimes.  Being a convicted felon can lessen your chances of future employment, housing, and educational prospects.

Mississippi also permanently disenfranchises those convicted of murder, rape, forgery, and several other crimes.
