Houston Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer
Protect Your Criminal Record Against a Misdemeanor Conviction
Although a misdemeanor is a lesser offense than a felony, a conviction may still have serious consequences. The results of a misdemeanor conviction may be varied, affecting a defendant psychologically and financially and also affecting his or her family. The criminal penalties that may be imposed may include imprisonment in county jail, community service, fines, restitution, alcohol or drug counseling, driver's license suspension, and probation.
Although a jail sentence may be avoided in some cases through probation and/or community service or other alternative sentencing, there are some cases where a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment may be imposed. There are also situations where a misdemeanor offense may be charged as a felony due to the use of a weapon or the fact that the defendant is a multiple offender, leading to time in a state correctional facility if the defendant is convicted.
