A misdemeanor charge, while a far less serious crime than a felony, is not something to take lightly. If you or a loved one is charged with a misdemeanor, or have reason to believe you may be charged with one, you need to quickly acquire the help of a Chicago criminal defense lawyer to aggressively fight to avoid the repercussions of a conviction. The criminal defense attorneys at Chivari P.C. Attorneys at Law, which also serves the areas of Cicero, Berwyn and Evanston, are prepared to effectively represent you or your loved one to fight a misdemeanor charge. It is important to contact the legal team from the firm as soon as possible since it is much easier to prevent a charge from being brought in many cases than it is to prove innocence once in court.

A misdemeanor crime is not considered serious enough to warrant time in a state prison, but jail time in the county is possible depending upon the specifics of the issue. There are three classes of misdemeanor crimes, Class A, Class B, and Class C, with the Class A misdemeanor being the most serious and incurring the most severe penalties. Penalties upon conviction can range from a maximum jail sentence of 364 days and fines of up to $2,500.00 for Class A misdemeanor, to the maximum Class C misdemeanor sentence of 30 days and fines up to $1,500.00. Probation may be granted in some cases. Some misdemeanor offenses include:
