If you have been charged with a misdemeanor criminal offense, you need to take these charges very seriously. The difference between a felony and a misdemeanor is that a misdemeanor carries a jail sentence of no more than one year, while a felony carries the potential for more than a year in jail. And perhaps more importantly, the consequences to a misdemeanor conviction can stretch well beyond jail time. Any criminal conviction can make it difficult to find a job, to obtain housing, or to participate in government programs. In short, your future is at stake, as the stigma of a criminal conviction can follow you long after any possible jail term is done.Â To protect your future, speak with an experienced Denver criminal defense attorney immediately.
