If you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor, you are going through a very difficult time. A misdemeanor may not be as severe a crime as a felony, but it can still have life-changing consequences.
Depending on the crime you are accused of, the penalties of a misdemeanor can include up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. You face the consequences of probation, probation fees, community service, and court costs. In addition, court records are public and often online. If convicted, the record of your conviction will be open to the prying eyes of the public.
You can end up with a permanent mark on your criminal record, which can hamper your ability to get a job, rent an apartment, or enroll in school.
