What A Non-Classified Felony Means

Some crimes that can draw a non-classified felony:

  • Murder of the first degree
  • Murder of the second degree
  • First degree manslaughter of a law enforcement officer

In Pennsylvania, crimes that fall under a non-categorized felony each have their own sentences. For example, a murder of the first degree conviction carries the punishment of death or life in prison. Murder of the second degree is punishable by life in prison.
