Misdemeanor Charges in Georgia

Handcuffed man - types of misdemeanor charges

If you have recently been arrested or charged with a crime, there are probably a lot of questions and concerns on your mind. A misdemeanor offense may not seem very serious at first, as they are typically known as lesser acts, but they can still have severe consequences.

A misdemeanor offense is a crime punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,000. Misdemeanor offenses in Georgia include shoplifting, DUI in Georgia, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, and public intoxication. A conviction of a misdemeanor remains on your permanent criminal record, which can affect you far beyond any immediate penalties you may face for the crime. You could face:

  • Time in jail or prison
  • Substantial fines or fees
  • Restitution
  • License suspension
  • Required counseling for drug or alcohol offenses.

Attorney Dixon will zealously work to keep the misdemeanor charges off of your record.
