730 ILCS 5/5-8-1 provides that the term of incarceration for a Class 4 felony is ordinarily between one and three years. 730 ILCS 5/5-9-1ordinarily provides for fines of up to $25,000 for felonies, except that corporations may normally be fined up to $50,000. Ashley and Humble (December 2005) indicate, "Only a small proportion of those convicted of a Class 4 felony are sentenced to prison." This is presumably due to offenders receiving suspended prison sentences and avoiding actual prison sentences through completion of terms of probation.

In Illinois, felonies are categorized by either the letter X or numbers. For example, you could be convicted of a Class 3 felony in Illinois. Misdemeanors are classified by the letters A, B, & C. I can't answer your question as asked because it doesn't fit the Illinois Penalty classifications. However, I can tell you that class 3 and class 4 felonies for forgery can be sealed. If you were convicted on felony forgery, make sure that it has been at least four years since you completed your sentence or parol. I hope this helps.
