Misdemeanors vs. Felonies: What Is The Difference?

Criminal offenses are classified into two broad categories: misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanors can receive up to one year in prison, while felonies can receive more than one year. In some instances, an attorney can help you secure reduced or alternative sentencing. However, the consequences for both misdemeanors and felonies can become more severe if you have previous convictions related to the charge.
