We have heard people tell us that they have been charged with “just a misdemeanor,” and that it wasn’t serious enough to justify speaking with a lawyer. Is a 90 day jail sentence serious enough for you? Minnesota law allows the imposition of such a sentence in a misdemeanor case, along with a fine of up to $1,000 and a whole host of other conditions.
If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, it is important to have a qualified attorney by your side. At Segal, Roston & Berris, we have represented individuals throughout the state who have been charged with a wide range of misdemeanor offenses, resulting in exceptional outcomes.
Fighting All Types of Misdemeanor Charges
There are a number of different types of misdemeanors, such as Theft, DWI, Assault, Disorderly Conduct, Driving After Suspension or Revocation, and countless others.
Regardless of how serious the charge may be compared to other types of crimes, misdemeanors are crimes under state law. This means that if you are convicted of a misdemeanor and ever asked the question, “Have you ever been convicted of a crime?” the correct answer is, unfortunately, “Yes.” This can result in difficulty finding housing or employment due to existence of a criminal record.
