A misdemeanor is a “lesser” criminal act. Misdemeanors are generally punished much less severely than felonies, but theoretically more so than regulatory offenses. Many misdemeanors are punished with monetary fines, and carry the possibility of up to 12 months in confinement.
The Law Office of Lucas O. Harsh will defend your rights in misdemeanor cases. We strive to keep your record clean if you have been charged with any type of misdemeanor, including one of the following:
Most first-time offenders who are convicted with a misdemeanor receive probation, however this is not the case if you have been convicted of any previous offense – felony or misdemeanor.
Getting one traffic offense may not seem like the end of the world, however if the offense is serious enough or if you accumulate enough traffic offenses, there can be serious consequences, even jail time. You will need an experienced criminal defense attorney to help protect your rights. Certain traffic offenses can and will result in a suspension or revocation of your privilege to drive. Drivers under the age of 21 must be especially cautious in this regard as there are a number of offenses which could result in points and a fine for an adult, but may result in an automatic suspension or revocation for a youthful driver.
