Felonies and Misdemeanors

Felonies and Misdemeanors


A misdemeanor is a criminal offense that generally carries penalties of jail time up to one year and fines. Typical misdemeanors include DUI, petit theft, drug possession, domestic violence, probation violations, and disorderly conduct. Felonies are more serious offenses that are punishable by prison terms of one year to life or the death penalty. These may be violent crimes, such as murder, rape, or carjacking or nonviolent crimes such as white collar fraud crimes, theft, drug distribution, and more.

In all of these cases, if you are convicted you will have a permanent criminal record. Aside from possible incarceration and financial penalties, your future will be adversely affected by such a record in terms of employment, professional licenses, education opportunities and more. Choosing an experienced and dedicated attorney to defend you may be the most important decision you ever make. Let Attorney Saunders use his knowledge, legal ability, and dedication to help you.
