Santa Ana Criminal Attorney

Santa Ana Misdemeanors Attorney

Once you are arrested, the authorities will decide what you will be formally charged with—and whether it will be a misdemeanor or a felony. Between the two, a misdemeanor is the less severe charge. Still, anyone facing a misdemeanor charge in Santa Ana or surrounding counties should immediately seek legal representation from a skilled Santa Ana criminal attorney.

Many people misjudge the seriousness of a misdemeanor charge, thinking that it is no big deal. In fact, even a misdemeanor can carry some sharp penalties. If you are convicted, you may only be sentenced to fines or community service. However, you also risk the maximum penalty for a misdemeanor—up to a year in prison. There can also be penalties that are not so explicit. For example, if you drive a commercial vehicle for work, even a misdemeanor DUI conviction could cost you your job.
