Types of Misdemeanors & Penalties
A misdemeanor is a crime which is punished less severely than a felony. Despite being a lesser offense, however, misdemeanors should not be treated lightly. In the state of Nevada, judges, and prosecutors still take misdemeanors seriously and you could be facing lasting consequences. Depending on the nature of the alleged crime, you could be facing time in jail, probation, community service, large fines, and a variety of other civil penalties. If you are convicted, you will have a misdemeanor on your permanent criminal record.
The types of misdemeanor offenses we defend include:
- Assault and battery
- Petty theft
- Drug possession (in some cases)
- Indecent exposure
- Disturbing the peace
- Public intoxication
- Criminal mischief
- Minor in possession of alcohol
