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 simple infractions such as traffic violations. There are three classes of misdemeanors, Class A, Class B, and Class C.
The punishment range for Class A Misdemeanor is: Fine not over $4,000, or jail not over 1
year, or both.
The punishment range for Class B Misdemeanor is: Fine not over $2,000, or jail not over
180 days, or both.
