It absolutely does. A felony is the performing of the act. What you speak of is convicted felon.

The term felony, in some common law countries, means a serious crime. The word originates ... A person who has committed a felony is a felon, and upon conviction of a felony in a court of law is known as a convicted felon or a convict.
