Consequences for Misdemeanor Crimes in California

In some states, misdemeanors are separated into "classes" or "levels." The classes signify the severity of the crime. Each class is associated with a specific consequence. California misdemeanors are not assigned levels. Instead, the court reviews the crime and assigns an appropriate punishment, given the unique details of the circumstances.

Consequences for misdemeanors can include:

  • Up to 364 days in jail
  • As much as $1000 in fines
  • Community service requirements
  • Rehabilitation terms
  • Probation

Similar to other crimes, California misdemeanors are subject to a statute of limitations. This means that you can only be charged with a crime within a certain amount of time after the incident occurred. That time limit is set according to the type of crime. For example, most misdemeanors must be charged within a year of the crime.

This one-year statute of limitations does not apply to crimes committed on a minor, certain sexual offenses, embezzlement, or certain crimes committed by public officials.
