Misdemeanor offenses are generally considered less serious than felony offenses, although there may be significant repercussions if an individual is convicted, including jail time, probation, fines, a criminal record, and possible points added to your driving record if the incident is traffic-related.

  • Vandalism
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Retail Fraud/Shoplifting

  • Trespassing
  • Unruly conduct
