In a very limited number of the most serious felony crimes, a felony conviction may result in the offender being sentenced to death. A felony conviction may also result in a lengthy term of imprisonment and, for some very serious crimes, may result in a sentence of life without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence. In addition to a lengthy term of imprisonment, a felony sentence may also require the offender to pay a substantial fine, make financial restitution to the victim, register as a sex offender, submit to lengthy terms of supervised or unsupervised probation, and submit to random drug testing. A felony conviction will also deprive the offender of the right to vote and the right to own or possess a firearm. It may also result in a loss of government benefits, prevent the offender from obtaining professional licenses, and make it difficult to find housing and employment.
