What Is Considered a Misdemeanor Crime in New York State?

There are 3 classes of misdemeanors per New York law: Class A, Class B, and unclassified misdemeanors. While the punishments are far less severe than those reserved for felony convictions, they’re nothing to take lightly and may put a stain on your criminal record. For instance, you could face from 15 days up to one year in jail and be slapped with fines up to $1,000.

Examples of Class A, Class B, and unclassified misdemeanor crimes in New York and their associated conviction penalties include:

  • Class A: These are the most serious types of misdemeanor crimes, and they include sexual misconduct, forcible touching, petit larceny, writing graffiti, and assault in the third degree. Those convicted may face no jail time up to one year in jail, and additional penalties could include fines, community service, probation, and driver’s license suspension.
  • Class B: These criminal charges are considered less severe than Class A yet should still be handled quickly to protect your legal rights. They include stalking, public lewdness, setting off fireworks without a permit, prostitution, and harassment in the first degree are all Class B misdemeanors. Those convicted could face no jail time or up to 90 days in jail. They may also have to pay files, have one year of probation, and be sentenced to community service.
  • Unclassified misdemeanor: Driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, and other miscellaneous New York misdemeanors are punishable by 15 days to 1 year in prison with the possibility of fines, 3 years of probation, conditional discharge, suspension or revocation of driving privileges, and orders of protection.
