Misdemeanors are less serious crimes than felonies. They can include such crimes as theft, DUI, disorderly conduct or trespassing. Other than jail time of up to a year, the penalties for misdemeanors include fines, probation and community service (https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/misdemeanor). Almost all traffic tickets are classified as misdemeanors; speeding, driving without a license or insurance, and DUI are all misdemeanors. Those that aren’t and rise to the degree of a felony include vehicular homicide and repeated DUIs.

Even if you are charged with a misdemeanor, you could still face serious consequences including up to a year in jail or fines.

Misdemeanor charges can’t be ignored. Contact the lawyers at Pappas & Russell for a free consultation today.
