What Do I Need To Know About Misdemeanors?

While misdemeanors are considered significant crimes, they are not treated with the severity of felonies. Generally, misdemeanor offenses are punishable by fines and jail time. However, the jail sentences are usually not to exceed one year of incarceration. This is the central distinction between felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are often punishable by prison sentences of greater than one year’s time, and misdemeanors carry sentences of less than one year in a jail.

There are three classes of misdemeanors in the state of Michigan.

The first two categories are considered Ninety-three Day Misdemeanors. These kinds of crimes are punishable by no more than 93 days in jail and a fine not to exceed $500.

The first of these Ninety-three Day Misdemeanors are infractions that violate local ordinances and are considered the least egregious offenses. The second subcategory of Ninety-three Day Misdemeanors concern violations of state law.

The third category of misdemeanor is labeled a One Year Misdemeanor that may be penalized by a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a fine not to exceed $1,000. All One Year Misdemeanors are concerned with violations of state law.

Michigan does allow for particular misdemeanor crimes to be expunged from the record of the offender or sealed from public record. Individuals who desire their records to be expunged must wait until one year after their arrest to enter an application with the court. Courts are not required to expunge a record upon the submission of a request. A Judge may choose to deny your application if you are ineligible or if an objection, usually made by a prosecutor, is made. Reasons you may be ineligible to have your record expunged include any pending criminal cases against you, too many prior criminal convictions or that your waiting period has not yet elapsed.
