Penalties Tied to Misdemeanor Offenses

Most people want to know what penalties or consequences they will face for the charges leveled against them. The repercussions for a misdemeanor can vary greatly depending on numerous factors such as past criminal convictions, the nature of the offense, the negotiation skills your lawyer has, the prosecution's stance, and whether or not the opportunity for alternative sentencing exists.

These offenses are punishable by less than a year in county jail, but may also include fines of up to $1,000. For most misdemeanor offenses, the maximum jail time is six months. This covers offenses ranging from shoplifting to public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

What Are Aggravated Misdemeanors?

While typical misdemeanors are restricted to the penalties listed above, there are some offenses considered to be "gross" or "aggravated" misdemeanors. These crimes can carry harsher penalties.

These may include offenses such as:

  • Domestic battery
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Driving while under the influence

They can result in a full year in county jail with fines reaching up to $2,000 in some cases. There are also some crimes than can be considered "wobblers," which means they can be prosecuted as felonies instead of misdemeanors under certain circumstances, bringing even more severe consequences.

With such serious repercussions on the line, it is crucial that you retain counsel from our Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. We can begin working on your defense right away.
