Are You Facing a Misdemeanor?

New York City Misdemeanor Crime Lawyer

Misdemeanor Charge Defense in New York City

Criminal charges are categorized depending upon the severity of penalties which may be associated with a conviction. A misdemeanor is an offense which may be penalized by up to one year in county jail. A felony is a more serious offense and may result in imprisonment for more than one year in state prison.

Certain felony offenses may even result in life imprisonment or the enforcement of the death penalty. Some crimes are what are referred to as "wobblers," such as:

  • Domestic violence
  • Assault
  • DWI

Wobblers may be classified as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the specific case.
