Fortunately, misdemeanor charges seldom lead to consequences as severe as those of felony charges. However, people accused of misdemeanors can still face prolonged incarceration, probation and fines.
If you have been accused of misdemeanors you need to take your charges seriously. You will still need to attend several court appearances, including a hearing to determine legal representation and another for your trial or plea bargain. These charges can still be added to your criminal record, causing employment, security clearance issues and other problems. Sentencing can still lead to time in jail, probation, fines, community service, treatment programs and classes, and can affect your driving privileges.
