Mississippi Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer
What is a Misdemeanor Charge?
Misdemeanors are crimes that are punishable by less than a year in jail and/or a fine. Crimes that are less serious in nature are often charged as misdemeanors.
In Mississippi, misdemeanor crimes include:
- Shoplifting (less than $500)
- Petty theft
- Simple battery
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Possession of marijuana (less than 30 g)
Although misdemeanors are considered "lesser offenses," it is still important that you hire a Mississippi misdemeanor defense attorney to help you fight the charges. A skilled defense lawyer may be able minimize the penalties against you or may even help keep you out of jail completely. If you are a first-time, non-violent offender, you may qualify for certain diversion programs, which can keep the arrest off of your record.
