Too often, misdemeanor cases are not taken seriously, either by the person accused or by the attorney representing the person. A conviction for a misdemeanor offense is a scar on your record that will likely follow an individual for life. It may affect employment opportunities, now and in the future, which in turn affects the ability to earn a living. As a result of a conviction, a person may face jail time, fines, a lengthy probation period with associated probation fees, community service, and counseling.
There are also many collateral consequences that can arise as a result of an arrest or conviction for a misdemeanor offense, including suspension of a driver’s license, surcharges on a driver’s license, prohibition from serving on a jury, and the inability to possess a firearm. In short, misdemeanor charges should always be taken seriously and defended aggressively.
