The Serious Consequences Of Misdemeanor Criminal Charges

A so-called minor crime can have a major impact on your life. A misdemeanor may not be as serious as a felony when it comes to sentencing. However, the consequences do not end once you have paid fines or served time in jail; your criminal record will follow you as you pursue schooling, apply for jobs, or look for a place to live.
