Nassau County Misdemeanor Lawyers

Getting arrested is a pivotal life event that nobody wants to face. Being accused of a crime could have serious implications for your future: You could face time in jail, hefty fines, probation, not to mention you will have to go through the criminal justice system to resolve your case. Even if it’s “just” a misdemeanor you’ve been charged with, the legal system is intimidating and often overwhelming, particularly if you’ve never been accused of a crime before. This is not the time to face a judge on your own without a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney by your side to devise a solid defense strategy using their knowledge of New York State law.

Is a Misdemeanor a Serious Crime Compared to a Felony?

Don’t make the mistake of assuming misdemeanors shouldn’t be taken seriously simply because they have less harsh penalties compared to felony convictions. While this is true, a misdemeanor conviction could land you in jail for up to one year and slap you with a fine up to $1,000, not to mention other sanctions per the New York statutes.

Misdemeanor crimes vary and are punished based on the “class” category they are in. For example, a Class A misdemeanor is considered the most severe and has the harshest sanctions, while Class B misdemeanors carry less harsh penalties.

Examples of crimes charged as misdemeanors in New York include but are not limited to:

  • Petit larceny
  • Assault in the 3rd degree
  • 4th degree criminal possession of a weapon
  • Theft of services
  • Forcible touching
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Graffiti application
  • Marijuana possession in the 5th degree
  • Prostitution
  • Harassment in the 1st degree
  • Indecent exposure
  • Stalking
  • Setting off fireworks without a valid permit
  • Any attempt to commit a Class A misdemeanor
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving while intoxicated (DUI)
