Q: What’s the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?
A misdemeanor crime is considered a lesser offense because it results in a lesser sentence than a felony. However, some misdemeanors can carry serious consequences. A felony is a very serious crime that usually has a prison sentence from at least one year all the way up to a capital punishment, depending on the nature of the felony. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, you should consult an experienced criminal defense attorney.
