In Connecticut, there are two crime classes that are divided into subclasses:
Felonies: Classified A through E.
Class A felonies are the most serious.
Class E felonies are the least serious felonies.
Misdemeanors are classified A through D.
Class A misdemeanors are the most serious misdemeanors.
Class D misdemeanors are the least serious.
Each letter in these subcategories is directly tied to the maximum jail time a judge could impose for a conviction of that level of offense. For example, if you were convicted of a class E felony, a judge could sentence you to up to three years in jail. That is the maximum sentence for class E felonies.
Similarly, if you were convicted of a class A misdemeanor, a judge could sentence you to up to one year in jail because that is the maximum sentence for class A misdemeanors.
