Many people mistakenly believe that being charged with a misdemeanor is no big deal, but nothing could be further from the truth. Although being convicted of a misdemeanor is significantly better than being charged with a felony, a misdemeanor can still have lasting consequences and change your life forever. The penalties can still interfere with your life and cost you substantial amounts of money, not to mention impacting your life in other ways.
Penalties For Misdemeanor Crimes
- Substantial fines
- Time spent in a county jail
- Permanent criminal record
- Community service
- Court ordered classes or programs
- Driver’s license restrictions or suspension
