What is a Misdemeanor?

A misdemeanor is a criminal offense that is less serious than a felony. However, a conviction can still result in harsh criminal penalties, including fines worth up to a thousand dollars and even jail time.

The following are examples of common misdemeanor charges:

  • DUI or DWI
  • Petty theft
  • Probation violations
  • Resisting arrest
  • Reckless driving
  • Marijuana possession
  • Domestic violence
  • Receiving stolen property

There are two main types of misdemeanors in California: standard misdemeanors and gross or aggravated misdemeanors. A standard misdemeanor is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 6 months, while a gross or aggravated misdemeanor carries a jail term of up to 364 days.
