In Michigan, a “Misdemeanor” is defined as, any crime less serious than a felony for which the maximum sentence is usually not more than one year in a county jail. A large percentage of criminal cases charged in the State of Michigan are misdemeanors. Generally misdemeanors include but are not limited to following:
- Minor In Possession
- Resisting and Obstructing
- Driving While License Suspended/Revoked
- Assault and Battery
- Domestic Violence
- Larceny under $1,000
- Breaking and Entering
- Possession of Marijuana
All misdemeanors should be taken very seriously and given careful attention. A misdemeanor conviction can stay with you and literally impact the rest of your life. One should never plead guilty simply because it is “only a misdemeanor.” The consequences of such a decision can have devastating and irreparable effects.
