Don’t Underestimate The Seriousness Of Misdemeanor Charges

Gross misdemeanor and misdemeanor criminal charges impact your life in many ways. The conviction on your record may be visible to your potential employers, lenders and financial institutions and landlords, to name a few. If found guilty of committing a gross misdemeanor, you face up to a year in prison, thousands of dollars in fines, payment of restitution to the victim, lengthy community service commitment and extensive counseling.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be resigned to these worst-case scenarios with the help of an experienced attorney fighting by your side. At Carlson & Jones, P.A., we have more than 70 years of combined experience representing good people who are facing bad situations. We can help you too.

Protect Your Rights When Charged With A Gross Misdemeanor

Drunk driving, theft, fifth-degree assault, domestic assault, cruelty to animals and driving without proof of insurance can all be elevated from misdemeanors to gross misdemeanors, which increases the potential consequences if convicted.

Other examples of gross misdemeanors include:

  • Third- and second-degree DWI offenses
  • Selling alcohol to a minor
  • Child neglect or endangerment
  • Fifth-degree assault and repeat assault charges
  • Traffic violations
  • Shoplifting/Theft
  • Fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct
  • Prostitution
  • Stalking
  • Contributing to the delinquency of a minor
  • Identifying yourself to police with a fictitious name
  • Forgery
  • Property damage
  • 911 interference

Even if your alleged offense is not on the list above, chances are good that we can help you.
