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
