Indianapolis Misdemeanor Lawyer
What Is a Misdemeanor in Indiana?
An Indiana misdemeanor is a criminal offense that can be punished by up
to one year of incarceration. Misdemeanors are considered minor offenses.
They often involve crimes against the public, property, or people, but
only if they involve minimal injury.
There is nothing more stressful than finding yourself in the middle of
criminal accusations, especially if this is your first time facing the judicial system. If
you are currently facing charges for a misdemeanor offense, you need to
take immediate legal action. Failing to do so could result in serious
consequences that could cause long-lasting damage to your future. Misdemeanor
offenses vary in severity depending on the charge, such as drug possession,
DUI, public intoxication, and assault and battery.
In the state of Indiana, misdemeanor offenses are divided into three categories:
- Class A misdemeanors—Punishable with up to $5,000 in fines and 1
year in jail
- Class B misdemeanors—Punishable with up to $1,000 in fines and 180
days in jail
- Class C misdemeanors—Punishable with up to $500 in fines and 60 days in jail
