What Is a Misdemeanor?

A misdemeanor is a crime that has a penalty of up to one year in county jail. It is a less serious crime than a felony. Unfortunately, it still appears on your record. It is important to find the right criminal defense attorney to represent you in court. Our Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense attorneys have experience dealing with the judges and prosecutors and will fight hard to get you the best possible outcome. It is important to know that misdemeanors can be elevated to felonies, depending on the seriousness of the crime, the injuries to the victim and your criminal record.

If you have been arrested for a crime, please contact our Rancho Cucamonga office and set up a free consultation. Our Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense attorneys would like to discuss your case with you and inform you of the possible outcomes.

Please continue to check our blog as our Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense attorneys will frequently update the blog with information that might be helpful if you or someone you know gets arrested.
