Misdemeanors and felonies are the two main classifications of offenses under Pennsylvania law. Misdemeanor offences are further subdivided into three categories, with a separate maximum punishment assigned to each. Despite being a less serious classification of crime than a felony in Pennsylvania, a misdemeanor conviction can have long-lasting effects on your freedom and capacity to find employment. Mangieri Law is here to assist you in making the crucial decision of selecting the best misdemeanor defense lawyer in Perry County.
Misdemeanor offense classifications and penalties
Misdemeanors in Pennsylvania can be categorised as misdemeanors of the first degree, second degree, or third degree. The least serious misdemeanors carry potential penalties of up to one year in jail and up to $2,500 in fines, making them third degree misdemeanors. The maximum penalties for 2nd degree misdemeanors are up to 2 years in jail and a $5,000 fine. The harshest penalties, up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, are reserved for misdemeanors of the first degree.
Additionally, “ungraded misdemeanors,” which are misdemeanors of the third degree under Pennsylvanian law, are a legal category. Although the maximum punishments for drug possession and various DUI charges vary based on the exact offence, both are regarded as ungraded misdemeanors.
