Misdemeanor Crimes in Bowling Green
About Misdemeanor Law in Kentucky
Any offense that you have been charged with that does not involve punishment by imprisonment could potentially be charged as a misdemeanor crime. Misdemeanors are offenses that often involve sentencing such as fines, forfeiture, or community service; however, even though these offenses are considered to be "lesser" crimes than felonies, they still can leave a lifelong permanent mark on your record.
Depending on the circumstances of your arrest and the specifics of your case, the penalties you are facing may vary. Additionally, misdemeanors could always potentially hold the capability of being escalated to a felony offense, which is why you should always work with an attorney who will aggressively defend and protect your case. If you are tried and convicted of a Class A misdemeanor, you could be penalized with up to $500 in fines. Class B misdemeanors carry up to $250 in fines and, depending on the discretion of the judge, you may be sentenced to imprisonment. Imprisonment may coincide with fines or be levied as an alternative to a fine.
