Vista Misdemeanor Defense Attorney
A Misdemeanor Is Still a Serious Crime
Once you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor offense in California, don’t wait before retaining representation. Just because a misdemeanor is a lesser charge than a felony doesn’t mean a guilty verdict won’t result in mandatory jail time or hefty fines.
Call the William L. Wolfe Law Offices at (760) 621-7588 immediately to discuss your case. You can trust our Vista criminal defense lawyer and legal team to gather all the information and evidence and build a strong defense for you.
Typically, a misdemeanor verdict will carry a maximum fine of $1,000 and maximum of six months in county jail. However, if a misdemeanor is classified as a gross, or aggravated, jail time increases to a maximum of one year and fines also increase.
Some crimes that may become gross misdemeanors are:
- Domestic battery
- Driving with a suspended license
- Driving under the influence
It is also possible that an infraction can become a misdemeanor under California law depending on the circumstances of the crime and your prior criminal record.
If the charges are deemed to be of a violent nature, then it is possible that the prosecution will not only seek out a prison term, but also anger management, fines, or at the least, probation. Our criminal defense lawyer in Vista is ready and prepared for this eventuality. We understand your freedom is at risk, so we are ready to fight.
