A: Yes and No. If you have two qualified prior felony convictions then you would be PFO 1. You qualify the felony convictions in that to count for Persistent Felony Offender you have to be over 18 at the time of committing the felony. If they are separate felonies then they can only enhance once if they are plead and sentenced together.

If the question is that they have no record at all and this is the first problem then they cannot be a persistent felon. It is by way of status you become a persistent felon, not any sort or type of criminal offense .
