A misdemeanor is a crime that is less serious than a felony that is punishable by imprisonment and/or fine.  Generally, misdemeanors are more serious than a simple infraction such as traffic violations.  There are three classes of misdemeanors, Class A, Class B, and Class C. 


Punishment range for Class A Misdemeanor:  Fine not over $4,000, or jail not over 1


year, or both.


Punishment range for Class B Misdemeanor:  Fine not over $2,000, or jail not over


180 days, or both.


Punishment range for Class C Misdemeanor:  Fine not over $500.
