George C. Creal, Jr. P.C. Fights For You, Misdemeanor or Felony
The criminal law defense lawyers of George C. Creal, Jr. P.C. fight for you no matter your situation, whether charged with a misdemeanor or felony, or you have a long criminal record. We truly believe all are entitled to a fair defense.
Although the nature of the crime may be the same, the State of Georgia specifies misdemeanors as less severe crimes than felonies. As a result, the penalties for misdemeanors are less strict than felonies.
Misdemeanors typically have a cap of one year in jail and $1,000 in fines. There are exceptions to this, although rare: aggravated and high misdemeanors. These tend to have the same cap of one year in jail, but the fine can be as high as five times greater.
We focus heavily on serving clients who face DUI misdemeanor charges.
Felonies, on the other hand, are much more intense across the board. The State of Georgia considers these more severe crimes and, as a result, deems a much more strict penalty for them. They tend to start at the cap for misdemeanors — that is, at one year of jail and $1,000. However, that is only where they start. They quickly escalate and can even go as far as a life sentence or the death penalty if the crime was serious enough.
Some felonies that we offer legal services in include:
- Illegal Drugs
- Felony Assault
- Sex Crimes
- Aggravated Assault
- Felony Fleeing and Eluding
- Vehicular Homicide
Both misdemeanors and felonies attach a criminal record to you wherever you go, even affecting potential employment long after you serve a sentence. Therefore, it is imperative you try to avoid this from happening at all costs. Your criminal defense lawyer from George C. Creal, Jr. P.C. is the key to ensuring this happens, as far as possible in your specific situation.
