Misdemeanor crimes and offenses are typically punishable by a sentence of 12 months or less in jail and a fine of no more than $6,000. Punishment for Misdemeanor crimes may also include a variety of other hardships, such as: community service picking up trash along the highway or working at recycling plant; mandatory drug and alcohol counseling; limitation of your right to come and go as you please; waiver of your fourth amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure; and suspension of your driver’s license.
