About Crimes & Their Punishments
The two primary categories of crimes are misdemeanors and felonies. A misdemeanor is considered to be the less serious type of crime, although the state of California still aggressively prosecutes misdemeanors. In addition to light jail time, misdemeanors can also be punished through monetary fines and other penalties.
A felony is considered to be the more serious category of crime. Typically, felony offenses are those which result in the offender receiving one or more years in prison as punishment. Regardless of the severity of the charges you are facing, our Chico criminal defense lawyer can protect your rights and fight for your best interests.
