Misdemeanor Charges in Georgia

If you have recently been arrested or charged with a crime, there are probably a lot of questions and concerns on your mind. A misdemeanor offense may not seem very serious at first, as they are typically known as lesser acts, but they can still have severe consequences.

A misdemeanor offense is a crime punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,000. Misdemeanor offenses in Georgia include shoplifting, DUI in Georgia, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, and public intoxication. A conviction of a misdemeanor remains on your permanent criminal record, which can affect you far beyond any immediate penalties you may face for the crime. You could face:

  • Time in jail or prison
  • Substantial fines or fees
  • Restitution
  • License suspension
  • Required counseling for drug or alcohol offenses.

Attorney Dixon will zealously work to keep the misdemeanor charges off of your record.

Types of Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors are considered lesser, but still serious, violations of the law. While not as severe as felony charges, misdemeanor charges still carry strict consequences and require a knowledgeable and experienced defense.

A few examples of misdemeanor offenses include:

  • Disorderly conduct
  • Criminal mischief
  • Resisting an officer (without violence)
  • Disorderly intoxication
  • Solicitation
  • Trespassing
