Rancho Cucamonga Misdemeanor Attorney
Board-Certified Criminal Defense Lawyer
Though less serious than
a felony, a misdemeanor conviction in California can still result in a jail sentence
of up to one year. Unlike many states, punishment for a misdemeanor conviction
in California is determined on a crime-by-crime basis. Decisions regarding
the statute of limitations are also made on a crime-by-crime basis. Where
no specific sentencing statute exists, punishment can be up to six months
in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
Examples of misdemeanor crimes include:
- Disturbing the peace
- Driving with a suspended driver's license
- Petty theft
- Public drunkenness
Some crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Referred
to as "wobblers," the criminal classification of these offenses
depends on the circumstances concerning the crime and the existence of
any prior criminal history.
