Penalties for Felony Crimes in Maryland

Maryland enforces strict criminal penalties for any type of crime, especially when it is a felony. Compared to misdemeanors, felonies are much more serious and carry harsher penalties, including more jail time, fines, and other consequences, and can even result in life in prison or the death penalty. Common examples of felonies include robbery, fraud, sexual assault, certain drug possession, and grand theft.

Unlike other states, Maryland does not classify felony crimes into different classes, which means the penalties are designated for each individual crime under the state's statutes. For example, aggravated assault can carry up to 25 years in prison, while distributing controlled substances can carry up to 5 years in prison and up to $15,000 in fines.
