Types of Cases in the General Felony Unit

While violent felonies charged in Albany County will still be assigned to our Major Offenses Unit for review and prosecution, there are several types of felonies that do not fit into the category of "Violent Felonies."

From December 2016 forward, these more broad felonies will instead be assigned to the General Felony Unit.  These types of felonies are wide-ranging, and include:

Some Financial Crimes, such as Grand Larceny

Burglary in the Third Degree

Robbery in the Third Degree

Felony Level Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle

Motor Vehicle Theft & Insurance Fraud

Some Drug Possession Crimes
