What Is a Misdemeanor?
A misdemeanor is a criminal offense that is less serious than a felony but more serious than an infraction. Most misdemeanors are punishable by fines or incarceration in local jails — but not prisons.
Take Things Seriously the First Time
If you are charged with misdemeanors multiple times, you could find yourself facing felony charges the next time. Criminal records build up and things get more serious as time goes on. That's why it is important to take things seriously the first time. Hire an attorney who can help get better results for you, like charges dropped, acquittals, findings of not guilty at trial, withholding of adjudication or involvement in pre-trial diversion programs.
