Misdemeanor Charges Should Be Taken Seriously
There are many seemingly innocent actions that can garner a misdemeanor charge, but that doesn’t mean that you should not take such a charge seriously. A first-class misdemeanor charge can land you in jail for a minimum of 6 months for extraordinary crimes, along with significant fines. It is extremely important to seek the counsel of an aggressive defense lawyer if you are charged with a misdemeanor in Arizona. Even though some might think that a misdemeanor will only bring a fine or little probation time, once it is on your record, any future charge will most definitely be treated more severely.
Misdemeanors vs. Felony Charges
Misdemeanor charges can result from low-level crimes that sometimes result in an arrest and an overnight in jail. However, if you are actually convicted of a misdemeanor, you could face a minimum of 6 months in jail along with significant fines.
Felonies, on the other hand, are the most severe classification of crime. A felony conviction will usually require the defendant to spend significant time in prison. Fines, fees, and even restitution may also be imposed.
If you are facing a misdemeanor charge, it is important to retain a qualified Prescott criminal defense attorney to ensure your record is kept clean. If convicted of your misdemeanor charge, any subsequent charges can be upgraded because of your previous conviction.
