A misdemeanor is a crime that’s less serious in nature than a felony. Common examples of misdemeanors include disorderly conduct, drug possession, simple assault, trespassing and vandalism. There are three classifications of misdemeanors in New York: Class A misdemeanors, which are considered to be one step below a felony; Class B misdemeanors which are less severe offenses; and unclassified misdemeanors which can encompass a wide variety of minor offenses.
Many people believe that a New York misdemeanor conviction will not result in jail time. This is not necessarily the case. A Class A misdemeanor in NY can be punishable by a prison term of up to one year, while a 90-day sentence can be imposed for a Class B conviction. Even if no jail time is awarded, a misdemeanor conviction could impact one’s ability to find employment or obtain a professional license.
