What are the Penalties for Misdemeanor Crimes in Nassau County?

Don’t let the name “misdemeanor” fool you – misdemeanor charges are nothing to laugh at. While the consequences are not as severe as those of a felony charge, a misdemeanor conviction can still yield painful consequences, such as:

  • 364 days in jail, up to $1,000 in fines, and up to three years of probation for Class A misdemeanors (probation may be as long as six years for cases involving misdemeanor sexual assault)
  • 90 days in jail and up to $500 in fines (or double the amount gained by the defendant in cases involving theft), and up to one year for Class B misdemeanors
  • Mandatory restitution or reparations, as ordered by a judge

In addition to serving your sentence, having a misdemeanor on your criminal record can also prevent you from pursuing gainful employment or higher education. Misdemeanor charges are anything but insignificant and carry serious penalties. Legal representation is important to help even the odds.
