If I was arrested for a felony, does that mean I will face felony charges in court?

A prosecutor makes an independent decision on what charges to file, irrespective of what the arrest was for. In most domestic violence cases, the Los Angeles Police Department arrests people for felony charges carrying $50,000 bail. After many of these arrests, prosecutors file misdemeanor offenses, rather than felonies, especially after an immediate pre-filing intervention by our law firm.
