FELONIES THAT CAN ALSO BE MISDEMEANORS aka Wobblers

The term “wobbler” is one that is frequently used with regards to the penalties, punishment, and sentencing associated with California crimes.


California law defines a “wobbler” as an offense that prosecutors can elect to file as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on:     

1. the specific facts of the case, and,

2.  your criminal history.      

If the facts of your case are severe.and/or you have a criminal history that justifies a harsh punishment.prosecutors will likely charge you with a felony.  Conversely, if this is your first offense.and/or there are mitigating facts that can excuse or reduce some of your criminal culpability prosecutors may be more likely to charge you with a misdemeanor.


There are a wide variety of California offenses that qualify as wobblers. Some examples include (but are not limited to):         

Penal Code 459 – California’s Burglary law,

Penal Code 245(a)(1)- California’s “assault with a deadly weapon” ADW law

Penal Code 273.5 – California’s spousal battery law,  and many other charges.




Why classification as a wobbler is important 

 There are certain rights and privileges that are revoked when you are convicted of a felony. As long as your offense remains a misdemeanor, you will preserve some of these rights (such as the right to own or possess firearms under Penal Code 29800 California’s felon with a firearm law.  


And, in the unfortunate event, you are charged with a wobbler felony, you can later petition the court to have your felony conviction reduced to a misdemeanor. This relief isn’t available for “straight” felonies.that is, felonies that are not classified as wobblers. For more information on the benefits of felony reductions, please review our article on California’s expungement laws. 

The bottom line is that if you’ve been charged with a wobbler, we know the most effective arguments for convicting prosecutors and judges to minimize your potential penalties by charging you with a misdemeanor instead of a felony.


For more information about California wobblers, or to discuss your case confidentially with one of our attorneys, do not hesitate to call the Law Offices of Mark Deniz.

1California Penal Code 17 PC — Classification of offenses. (“(b) When a crime is punishable, in the discretion of the court, by imprisonment in the state prison or by fine or imprisonment in the county jail [which is, by definition, a wobbler], it is a misdemeanor for all purposes under the following circumstances: (1) After a judgment imposing a punishment other than imprisonment in the state prison. (2) When the court, upon committing the defendant to the Youth Authority, designates the offense to be a misdemeanor. (3) When the court grants probation to a defendant without imposition of sentence and at the time of granting probation, or on application of the defendant or probation officer thereafter, the court declares the offense to be a misdemeanor. (4) When the prosecuting attorney files in a court having jurisdiction over misdemeanor offenses a complaint specifying that the offense is a misdemeanor, unless the defendant at the time of his or her arraignment or plea objects to the offense being made a misdemeanor, in which event the complaint shall be amended to charge the felony and the case shall proceed on the felony complaint. (5) When, at or before the preliminary examination or prior to filing an order pursuant to Section 872, the magistrate determines that the offense is a misdemeanor, in which event the case shall proceed as if the defendant had been arraigned on a misdemeanor complaint.”)Penal Code
