If you or a friend has gotten into legal trouble, you may have heard words such as felony and misdemeanor thrown around. As you will learn in this video, there are important differences between these two criminal charges.
A felony is any criminal charge that is punishable by one year in prison, while a misdemeanor carries up to one year of time in a local jail. A felony conviction will stay with you for the rest of your life and can have serious consequences for your career. Your best bet is to bail out of jail and contact a criminal defense lawyer as quickly as possible.
