What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony in California?
There are two classifications of criminal behavior in California: misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanor offenses are lighter crimes punishable by no more than a year in the county jail and not more than $1,000 in fines. A felony on the other hand, is a much more serious crime punishable by a minimum of one year in the state prison. While any type criminal conviction must be dealt with swiftly and with competent legal aid, felony offenses can have dire consequences on your educational and professional pursuits and can result in life imprisonment.
It is important to understand that some misdemeanor offenses can even be escalated to felonies if there are aggravating circumstances. Regardless of whether you face felony DUI charges, or a misdemeanor drug offense, we are ready to advocate zealously on your behalf.
