What is a Class D Felony?


On Tuesday, April 23, Jevon Mallory was charged with a Class-D felony and issued a $10,000 dollar bond after allegedly assaulting STLCC-Meramec student Blythe Grupe on April 18 in a Communications South bathroom.

So, what is a Class-D felony?

According to a Class D felony is the lowest level that felony crimes can be classified in the United States. Regulatory infractions that are not considered dangerous or serious crimes are misdemeanors. Misdemeanors will not result in sentences of more than one year.

Punishment for Class D felonies can result from up to two to seven years in prison. A sentence cannot be lower than two years or higher than seven. Fines generally are no more than $5,000.

According to Campus Police Chief Paul Banta, a pre-sentence will take place where a judge will determine, based on the defendants history, if he will be a threat in the future.

A pre-sentence looks at several different legal aspects of a defendant including their juvenile record, adult record, probation and parole history. The pre-sentence also reviews extralegal information such as gang affiliations, background and ties to the community, substance abuse, mental health and several other aspects that determine a defendants well-being.

Mallory is currently being held in St. Louis County Jail under these charges and will have a preliminary hearing at the Division 40 St. Louis County Court on April 29 at 9 a.m.
