Misdemeanors and Felonies

trespassingMisdemeanors are lesser crimes than felonies but can also leave a permanent mark on your record. Misdemeanors are crimes that are punishable by a fine and/or jail time of up to one year. Misdemeanor crimes can include but are not limited to:

  • Theft or Common Theft
  • Assault
  • Drunk Driving DUI/DWI
  • Vandalism
  • Public drunkenness
  • Resisting arrest or Obstructing or Resisting a Police Officer
  • Trespassing
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Breach of the Peace
  • Failure to appear in Court
  • Prostitution

If you are accused of a misdemeanor offense, then you should consult our criminal defense attorneys immediately. Our criminal defense attorneys will work with the prosecutor and find the best options to reduce or eliminate the charge.

Felonies are more serious crimes that are punishable by imprisonment over one year. They are typically more difficult for a criminal defense attorney to defend and/or get a reduced sentence. Examples of felony crimes include but are not limited to:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Drug possession and/or sale
  • Child abuse
  • Burglary
  • Illegal possession of weapons
  • Money laundering
  • Child pornography

Since felonies attract heavy punishments and fines, you should consult a criminal defense attorney to learn more about your rights, your defenses, and the complicated legal system.
