Misdemeanor charges can result in jail time in Arizona

Some people might not take misdemeanor charges as seriously as they should. While it is true that these charges usually don't have the prison sentences that are associated with felony charges, misdemeanor charges still can carry a jail sentence. Anyone who is facing misdemeanor charges should understand that they must take these charges seriously because they are facing a possible jail sentence if they are convicted.

One of the first things that you should do if you are facing a misdemeanor is to learn what the class of the charge is. We can help you determine the class of your charge if you are unsure. There are three classes of misdemeanor charges in Arizona. Each class has a specific maximum jail term associated with it.

Class 3 misdemeanors are the least serious. These carry a jail sentence of up to 30 days. Class 2 misdemeanors carry a jail sentence of up to four months. Class 1 misdemeanors carry a jail sentence of up to one year.

We understand that you probably want to avoid a jail sentence if possible. While we can't offer you a guarantee that you won't have a jail sentence imposed, we can offer you a guarantee that we will work hard on your case.

It is vital that you get started on your defense right away when you are charged. Your defense options depend on a variety of factors, including your actions starting from the moment you begin to interact with law enforcement officers regarding your case. This means that any interrogations, interviews and other exchanged information can impact your case.
