Different crimes come with different penalties, ranging from community service to fines and jail time. Criminal offenses are broken into two broad categories:


  • Misdemeanors: Misdemeanors are considered less serious crimes and, while they can still come with fines and potential jail time, often have much more lenient penalties. Examples include theft, traffic violations, and simple assault.
  • Felonies: Felonies are considerably more severe than misdemeanors, and often come with hefty fines and extensive prison time. Examples of felonies include homicide, sexual assault, and kidnapping.

Facing criminal charges of any sort can be frightening; in order to preserve your freedom, it’s important to speak to a qualified criminal defense attorney. Attorney Walters will advise you on the nature of your charge, help you develop a defense argument, gather evidence, and represent you assertively in court. He has been able to get charges/penalties reduced and even have cases dismissed for many clients.
