Three Degrees of Misdemeanor Crimes
A misdemeanor refers to a serious infraction which usually results in substantial fines or jail time. Misdemeanor crimes generally include such acts as simple assault, trespassing, vandalism, petty theft, prostitution, and stalking.
Pennsylvania organizes misdemeanors into three categories, based on the seriousness of the offense. The more severe the charge, the heavier the penalty will likely be.
The categories of misdemeanors and their penalties include:
- First-degree misdemeanors: A maximum fine of $10,000 and up to 5 years’ imprisonment
- Second-degree misdemeanors: A maximum fine of $5,000 and up to 5 years’ imprisonment
- Third-degree misdemeanors: A maximum fine of $2,500 and up to 1 year of imprisonment
