(5) For a Class D felony, the sentence shall not exceed six (6) years;
and

(6) For an unclassified felony, the sentence shall be in accordance
with a limitation of the statute defining the felony.

The Hope Part:

Most felonies in Arkansas allow for a possible probation sentence. It is important to talk to an experienced Arkansas criminal defense attorney when facing felony criminal charges.
