Common Misdemeanor Offenses in California
A misdemeanor charge can be petty and result in a slap on the wrist. However, the circumstances of your case will determine how the court will treat it. The common misdemeanor offenses under California law include:
- CA Penal Code 647(f) public intoxication
- CA Vehicle Code 20002(a) hit-and-run accidents
- CA Vehicle Code 14601.1(a) driving with a suspended license
- CA Penal Code 240 assault
- CA Penal Code 242 battery
- CA Penal Code 415 disturbing the peace
Each of these common misdemeanor offenses can result in high fines and jail sentences. In addition, repeated misdemeanor offenses can result in mandatory minimum jail sentences. With an experienced criminal defense attorney, you may be able to benefit from an alternative resolution and avoid jail time.
