Feloniously Law and Legal Definition

Feloniously means acting in a manner that constitutes a felony or acting with intent to commit a felony.

At common law the word feloniously signifies intent to commit a crime; that it characterizes a mind bent on doing what is wrong; that it means that the act proceeded from an evil heart or purpose. But under statutes if the facts proved establish a crime punishable by death or imprisonment in the state prison, then the crime was committed feloniously; and if they establish any other offence, that offence was not feloniously committed. [State v. Clark, 83 Vt. 305 (Vt. 1910)].
