Misdemeanor offense classifications and penalties

Misdemeanors can be 1st degree, 2nd degree, or 3rd degree offenses in Pennsylvania. The least serious misdemeanors, those of the third degree, are punishable by a maximum of one year in jail and a fine of up to $2500. The maximum penalties for misdemeanors in the second degree are a $5,000 fine and a sentence of up to two years in jail. The worst penalties, which can include up to five years in jail and a $10,000 fine, are associated with misdemeanors of the first degree.

Ungraded misdemeanors, which are misdemeanors of the third degree, are also considered to be a category of offense under Pennsylvania law. Drug possession and a few DUI charges are regarded as ungraded misdemeanors, while the maximum punishments for each of these crimes vary based on the exact offence.
