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.
