A misdemeanor is defined as any “lesser criminal act.” Misdemeanors are punished less severely than a felony, generally including any crime punishable with jail time up to one year or less. This includes petit theft, simple assault, domestic violence, batteries, trespass, criminal mischief, reckless driving, DUI (first or second offense), and many others.

A misdemeanor conviction can have serious consequences for your life, including a criminal record which never goes away, housing and career difficulties, an inability to obtain a job, financial problems, jail time, and loss of privileges you may take for granted.

Our criminal defense lawyers are committed to providing you with an aggressive defense to help reduce the charges reflected on your record, or ultimately have them thrown out completely.

Probation Matters

It’s all too easy to inadvertently violate the conditions of probation, and doing so can cost you big time. Depending on the circumstances of your case, violations of probation can be minor to severe.

One of the best ways to protect that freedom is to have a reputable criminal defense attorney experienced in probation issues backing you up. It is important to understand your rights in a probation hearing in order to avoid and minimize further legal consequences, and most importantly, protect your freedom. In the end, it can mean the difference between returning to jail and remaining a free person.

What to Do When You’re Charged with a Crime

After you are being charged or arrested for a crime, it is crucial to keep in mind you have the absolute right to remain silent. It is suggested that any statement you made to the authorities will cause various implications. A false statement may also lead to strong legal implication with undesirable results. Thus, it is highly suggested to remain silent in nearly every situation.

If you have been charged with a crime, it’s wise to do the following:

  • Do not self-incriminate
  • Be careful when speaking about your case—anyone even close friends and family members can be forced to testify against you
  • Do not post anything regarding your case on social media

If you have been arrested for a crime, after posting bail, it is strongly advised that you enlist in the help of a skilled felony or misdemeanor attorney who can evaluate your situation and advise you on the right legal action for your specific case. Glen Lansky has handled criminal matters as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney for the past 25 years.
