  • Petty Theft
  • Prostitution
  • Simple Assault & Battery
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Reckless Driving
  • Personal Use of Marijuana

Felonies, on the other hand, are considered more sever crimes. The punishments for felonies often include:

  • At Least 1-year in Prison
  • High Fines
  • Registration for Sex Offenses

They also bare a heavily negative social stigma. A felony conviction will disqualify you from many employment opportunities and prevent you from living in most nice rental communities. It is crucial that you hire the right criminal defense lawyer.
