Being charged with a misdemeanor crime can be as intimidating as facing any felony – especially if you have never been in trouble with the law before. No one wants to plan their lives around a potential incarceration, be it in a jail cell or in a prison block. Jail sentences are typically one year or less for misdemeanor convictions; however, that one year or six month sentence is long enough for you to lose your job, be evicted from your home and lose custody of your children.

If you are facing misdemeanor offenses, call my firm today. I have helped clients facing the following charges:

  • Assault
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Domestic violence
  • Driving While License Suspended (DWLS)
  • Drunk driving/OWI
  • Marijuana possession
  • Minor In Possession (MIP) of illicit substances
  • Probation violations
  • Shoplifting
  • Theft
  • Traffic violations
  • If you or a loved one is facing misdemeanor offenses, call me today. We can discuss the details of your arrest during a free consultation and devise a plan of defense. Don’t let a simple mistake ruin the future that you’ve planned.

Penalties for misdemeanor offenses:

  • OWI
  • Up to 93 days in jail
  • A 6-month suspension of driving privileges
  • A 6-point assessment on driving license
  • Fines from $100 to $500
  • A 2-year Driver Responsibility Fee of $1,000
  • Up to 360 hours (45 days) of community service
  • Marijuana Possession
  • Up to 1 full year in jail
  • A fine up to $2,000
  • Domestic Violence First Offense
  • Up to 93 days in jail, or
  • A $500 fine, or both
  • Domestic Violence Second Offense
  • Up to 1 full year in jail, or
  • A $1,000 fine, or both

Misdemeanor offenses are not as serious as felonies, but they can nonetheless impose drastic life-altering changes upon a person’s life. Drunken drivers not only face incarceration but also the loss of their driving privileges, which can literally prevent them from getting to work and staying employed. A conviction on charges of marijuana possession can make it very difficult for a guilty offender to find gainful employment, even after being released from jail and fulfilling the terms of their probation.

The consequences of sustaining a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can be disastrous, even after you have paid your debt to society. So, if you or a loved one has been arrested for any misdemeanor charge, call my office today. A review of your case may reveal mistakes in the performance of police procedures that may render the state’s evidence inadmissible before the courts. Don’t take the outcome of your case lightly. Felony charges may impose harsher penalties, but misdemeanors are no laughing matter.
