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:

  • Probation
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Victim restitution
  • Community service
  • Drug or alcohol treatment
  • Psychological counseling
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Vehicle impounding

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.
