The crime that is considered a misdemeanor is not as severe as the felony, so the punishment is also less painful than a felony. The trials are in the lower courts, and if the person has to be sent to jail, he serves in the country or city jail and not in prison. Misdemeanor has various seriousness levels that are determined by different factors.
Besides jail time and fines as well as a criminal record, misdemeanor conviction might cause other problems, like:
- Losing professional licenses
- Loss or restriction of the driver’s license
- Deportation, no matter what is your immigration status
- Canceled rights of Second Amendment
- Difficulty in getting better or new jobs
- Unable to access public benefits of housing
- The lesser potential of earning
- More premiums of auto insurance
- Severe punishment for crimes that are committed later
