A Misdemeanor Charge Should Be Taken Seriously
There’s no reason to underestimate a misdemeanor charge. A petty misdemeanor can mean a hefty fine, while a gross misdemeanor conviction can cost you $3000 in fines and possibly up to 1 year in jail. Unknown to many, drug-related offenses also often involve the loss of driving privileges.
