What are Misdemeanors?

Crimes that are classified as a misdemeanor under Georgia law are generally of a less serious nature than those classified as a felony. A misdemeanor is typically a non-violent crime that does not result in physical harm to the victim.

Examples of misdemeanors include:

  • Public intoxication
  • Speeding and traffic violations
  • Vandalism
  • Trespassing
  • Prostitution
  • Some forms of domestic violence
  • Some DUI charges
  • Theft of items worth less than $300
  • Other crimes with jail sentences of less than one year

Penalties for Misdemeanor Conviction

Classified as Class A, Class B, or Class C misdemeanor. Class A is the most serious and Class C, the least. These are punishable by one or more of the following: jail term of no more than a year in jail, probation, community service, and smaller fines. Loss of privileges, such as gun possession, driving privileges, or even overnight visitation with your children could also occur.

Misdemeanor Convictions Affect Your Life

While misdemeanors are not serious crimes, compared to felonies, a conviction is not to be taken lightly. If you are convicted, you will have a permanent criminal record. Even though the crime may be minor, the conviction may impact your ability to get a job, attend higher education, get a promotion at work, and other opportunities.
