York Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer

Misdemeanor Charges and Penalties

Misdemeanors are considered less serious criminal offenses than felonies. They are broken into three separate groups, as delineated by a "degrees" system, in which each successive degree is less serious than the one previous. First degree misdemeanors can be met with up to five years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. Second degree misdemeanors can be met with two years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines. And third degree misdemeanors can carry penalties that include up to a year in prison and a fine of $2,500.

Common examples of misdemeanors include:

  • Simple assault
  • Harassment
  • Criminal mischief
  • Terrorist threats
  • False imprisonment

If you have been charged with any level of misdemeanor, it is in your best interest to seek the help of a York criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. They will be able to review the facts and evidence of your case in order to provide you with an aggressive defense in a court of law.
