Three Different Types of Misdemeanor Charges

There are several classifications of misdemeanors. Unclassified misdemeanors include:

  • Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) 1192.2
  • DWI 1192.3
  • Driving with a Suspended License

Class B Misdemeanors include the following crimes:

  • 5th Degree Marijuana Possession
  • Attempted Assault
  • 1st Degree Harassment

Misdemeanors in the Class A category include crimes such as:

  • 4th Degree Criminal Mischief
  • 2nd Degree Criminal Trespass
  • Petit Larceny
  • 3rd Degree Assault
  • Endangering the Welfare of a Child

Misdemeanor Charges Still Carry Hefty Consequences

Some classes of misdemeanors carry a sentence of a 90-day jail term, while others carry a full year of jail time. If you are charged with a crime that only requires 90 days in jail, in New York City, then you are not entitled to a jury trial. You will receive a bench trial where the judge serves as both judge and jury. For other misdemeanor charges, you can choose between a bench trial and a jury trial. Our skilled and experienced criminal defense attorneys in White Plains can devise an effective legal strategy for your unique situation.
