Clearwater Misdemeanor Attorney
Clearwater Misdemeanor Crimes
Misdemeanor charges are punishable by up to one year of incarceration or one year probation and no more than a $1,000 fine. As opposed to Criminal Circuit Court, where felonies are handled, misdemeanors are handled in Criminal County Court and are considered less serious than felonies. Let the Clearwater misdemeanor attorneys assist you in this difficult time. Some common misdemeanors are:
- Driving on a suspended license
- Petit/retail theft
- Resisting arrest without violence
- Obstructing/opposing an officer without violence
- Loitering Assault/battery
- Domestic violence
- Possession of cannabis < 20grams
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
Unlike felony charges, a misdemeanor conviction will not result in loss of your civil rights, but they can still result in jail time. Also, it is not uncommon for a first time offender to be convicted and face the consequences of having a criminal record. These are real possibilities unless you are represented by an experienced Clearwater misdemeanor attorney.
At Roman & Roman, you will be represented by skilled Clearwater misdemeanor attorneys who will do what is necessary to get the best results possible for you. The misdemeanor attorneys in Clearwater will make every effort to make sure your criminal record will not prevent you from later applying to have it sealed or expunged.
