Penalties You Could Face if You Are Convicted
Crimes can be categorized as violations, misdemeanors, or felonies. Some traffic offenses and other minor crimes are classified as violations and are generally handled by appearing in court and/or paying a fine. Misdemeanors and felonies, however, require a trial.
Misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, but can still result in hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines and fees, as well as possible time in jail. Examples of misdemeanors range from retail theft to marijuana possession.
Felonies are the most serious charges a person can face and include offenses such as:
- Drug trafficking
- White collar crimes
- And murder
These are only a few examples of felonies. If convicted of a felony, you could face thousands of dollars in fines and fees and you could spend time in state prison. You might even face a life sentence if your offense is very serious, such as manslaughter or murder.
