Misdemeanors

If you are charged with a misdemeanor, upon conviction you may face a one year or less of jail time and up to $1000 fine. However, if you have a criminal history, a misdemeanor could be changed to a felony which bears more serious consequences. Examples of Misdemeanor crimes are: DUI’s, shoplifting, certain Domestic Violence charges. However, if there is prior criminal conviction, in certain cases, the misdemeanor can be charged as a felony, therefore, the consequences will be much serious than misdemeanor. However, in certain cases, an skilled and aggressive Criminal Defense attorney can reduce the charges to infraction.
