Are there different types of felonies you can be charged with?

My son's been arrested and is currently in lock up at county. I called down to see what the charges are and they just say felony charges. Is there difference types of felonies that they can charge against him? Like if it's a less serious felony will he be sentenced to community service or something better than prison time?
