Types of Misdemeanor Crimes
Representation in Misdemeanor Cases
Misdemeanors can include crimes such as petty theft, battery, loitering,
DUI, disorderly conduct, possession of marijuana, trespassing and driving with a suspended license. A misdemeanor offense may be less serious than a felony crime, but it can still result in serious consequences, and shouldn't be taken lightly. Depending on the facts of the case, sentencing for committing a misdemeanor can include:
- Jail time
- Victim restitution
- Community service
- Drug or alcohol treatment
- Psychological counseling
- Driver's license suspension
- Vehicle impoundment
You will also have a permanent criminal record that will affect job options, housing and educational opportunities, as well as your ability to obtain certain professional licenses. It may even result in the loss of a license you currently have. A West Palm Beach criminal attorney can review your case and discuss defense strategies that may help you avoid a conviction. Legal advice from a professional is extremely important, and will enable you to make informed decisions regarding the charges against you.
