California Misdemeanor Charges
Penalties for misdemeanor charges may vary depending on the case. However, the jail time for a misdemeanor is a maximum of one year in California. Penalties may also include fines up to $1,000. However, there are other consequences that you may experience due to a misdemeanor conviction. For example, conviction can interfere with your ability to secure employment, find housing, and cause other complications. For that reason, it is vital to have an experienced attorney fight for your rights. Our state crime defense attorneys may be able to help you reduce or even dismiss your charges.
