Misdemeanor Crimes & Penalties

Though less severe than felonies, misdemeanor crimes can still be punished with hefty fines and jail time. Misdemeanors are further broken down into two categories: first-degree and second-degree misdemeanors. In general, first-degree misdemeanors have longer terms of imprisonment and higher fines than second-degree offenses.

There also are some misdemeanor offenses that carry a maximum period of incarceration exceeding that of a second-degree misdemeanor but less than that of a first-degree misdemeanor, such as DUI and BUI first offense and reckless driving.

The consequences of a misdemeanor range in severity.

Generally, a conviction of a first-degree misdemeanor can lead to:

  • A term of imprisonment of no more than 1 year.
  • A fine of no more than $1,000.

Generally, a conviction of a second-degree misdemeanor can lead to:

  • A term of imprisonment of no more than 60 days.
  • A fine of no more than $500.

Even these penalties, though less harsh than felony penalties, can be a huge burden on you and your family. Allow the Morris Firm to represent you so that you can seek a favorable resolution to your case.
