Misdemeanors Aggressive Representation. Compassionate Guidance.

Stuart Misdemeanor Attorneys

Fighting to Clear Your Name from the Criminal Justice System

Don’t make the mistake of believing your misdemeanor charges are meaningless. Far too many defendants fail to treat their accusations seriously because they falsely assume that misdemeanor charges are no big deal. That perception could not be further from the truth.

A conviction for a misdemeanor offense could land you in jail, subject you to steep fines, and result in a criminal record. Thus, passing background checks for jobs, housing, loans, and higher education will be difficult due to your criminal record. Not to mention, the stigma of being a convicted offender can haunt you for life, long after you served your time. That’s why you can count on our Stuart misdemeanor lawyers at ADL Law, P.A. to fight day and night to reduce or dismiss your accusations. We are deeply aware of what’s at stake in your life, which is why you can count on us to fiercely defend your misdemeanor charges, no matter what you’re up against.

Misdemeanor Charges & Penalties

To better understand the magnitude of your charges, it will benefit you to review examples of misdemeanor crimes below, with the assumption that they are first-time offenses:

  • Petty theft
  • Shoplifting
  • DUI
  • Driving while license suspended
  • Reckless driving
  • Loitering
  • Trespassing
  • Public intoxication
  • Giving alcohol to a minor
  • Battery
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism
  • Possession of marijuana (less than 20 grams)
  • Prostitution

Misdemeanor accusations can be in the first or second degree. First-degree misdemeanors are more serious than second-degree misdemeanors, however, both charges carry detrimental consequences, such as:

  • First-degree misdemeanor: $1,000 fines and up to 1 year in prison
  • Second-degree misdemeanor: $500 fines and up to 60 days in prison

In addition, you may be required to pay restitution to victims, fulfill community service hours, attend counseling and treatment, and serve probation.

Difference Between Felony & Misdemeanor Charges

Felonies are the most serious accusations a person can receive, as they are punishable by death, life in prison, or imprisonment for at least one year. Typical felony crimes involve large amounts of drugs or money or causing serious bodily harm or death to another person. Examples of felony charges include murder, robbery, and rape. With so much on the line, the legal proceedings for felony charges can be extensive compared to misdemeanor criminal procedures.

While felony charges carry harsher penalties than misdemeanors, the bottom line is that both types of offenses can rob you of your freedom, future, reputation, and, ultimately, your peace of mind.
