When it comes to the legal classification of different crimes, there are certainly levels and distinctions that carry with them corresponding punishments and/or fees. While it may be preferable to avoid, say, a felony in exchange for being found guilty of a relatively less severe misdemeanor, it should be noted that in some cases you may not be getting off so lightly after all. Misdemeanors are still punishable by a fine and up to a year sentence in jail, so being charged with something seemingly less severe could still affect your life in a very significant way, especially when it comes to job prospects. In the infographic below, you can learn more about some of the more common misdemeanors and the consequences that come with them.
