Ohio crimes are not created equal. Like every state, Ohio categorizes its crimes into one of two broad categories — misdemeanors and felonies. Within those categories, there are 11 subcategories of crimes, five for misdemeanors and six for felonies. The first degree of each is the most serious of its parent category, save for felonies. In Ohio, there is such a thing as an “unclassified felony.” An unclassified felony is a classification reserved for the most two serious felonies in Ohio — murder and aggravated murder. Each of these crimes carries its own specific penalties, which are far more serious than a standard first-degree penalty.
