Misdemeanor Crimes

Misdemeanors are less severe than felony crimes, however, a misdemeanor conviction can result in harsh penalties and fines, depending on the severity of the crime.

It is important not to underestimate the seriousness of a misdemeanor charge. If convicted of a misdemeanor, the defendant can serve up to six months in jail and incur a maximum fine of $2,500 in addition to court-ordered requirements.

Federal Crimes

A federal crime can include:

  • Mail fraud
  • Bank robbery
  • Child pornography

Felony Crimes

Featuring significant, long-term effects on the accused’s life, a felony crime conviction includes harsher consequences than what one would receive for a misdemeanor crime.

If convicted of a felony, the defendant can face an extended prison sentence, steep fines, difficulty securing a job and obtaining housing, losing the ability to vote and more.
