Facing A Misdemeanor Charge?

Misdemeanor crimes are by far the most common charges filed by the state of Indiana. By definition, misdemeanors are crimes that are punishable by less than one year in jail and fines of $5,000 or less. Misdemeanor crimes include possession of marijuana, first-time theft, public intoxication and trespassing charges.

One of the biggest mistakes people charged with misdemeanors make is to not treat the offense seriously. Even though the immediate consequences may be relatively slight, the collateral and long-term consequences could be devastating. In addition to up to one year in jail time, probation, fines and license suspensions are possible penalties associated with convictions for misdemeanor offenses.
