Helping You In The Legal Process


Misdemeanors are crimes that are less serious than felonies. Misdemeanor convictions may result in incarceration in a parish or local jail and, sometimes, a fine. In Louisiana, misdemeanor convictions have a maximum sentence of 6 months; however, there are a handful of exceptions that carry up to one year in parish jail.

Some common misdemeanor crimes include DWI, domestic abuse battery, simple battery, theft, public intoxication, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, criminal trespass, and simple assault.

While misdemeanors are less serious than felony charges, a conviction can still have a significant impact on your life. While jail time is a potential immediate consequence, some misdemeanor convictions have consequences beyond jail time.

For example, misdemeanors for DWI (driving while intoxicated) and domestic abuse battery are enhanceable. That means you can face stiffer penalties if you are ever arrested for that charge again.

Additionally, your gun rights may be affected if you are convicted of certain misdemeanors, including domestic abuse battery.

While a misdemeanor charge may not seem serious at the outset, the last effects of a misdemeanor conviction may have a significant impact on your future. Don’t roll the dice on your future. Hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
