What is the Penalty for a Class 2 Felony in Virginia?

In the Commonwealth of Virginia, if you are charged with any crime, you will be judged according to the felonies in the Law. Felony crimes are for serious offenses; it included harsh results and longer sentences in the jail. It can also cost you a heavy fine. If you are charged with any felony crime, you will be entered in a criminal record book, a place where any sane person wouldn’t like to be, at all. Felonies are categorized as per how harsh and serious the crime is. Every felony has different penalties, punishments, fines, and sentences.

Class 2 felonies include serious crimes as well but less than Class 1. Although the punishments can be very severe and harsh, too. Aggravated wounding (intentionally or deliberately causing someone injuries or disabling someone) leads the line of crimes included in Felony 2. This felony can cause a criminal in jail up to 20 years and $100,000 fine. A Class 2 felony often involves intentional crimes, such as arson, kidnapping, aggravated malicious wounding, which is causing permanent and physical impairment to another person, murder in some situations, and burglary with a deadly weapon.
