What is a?
A misdemeanor refers to a less serious criminal offense compared to a felony. Misdemeanors are generally punishable by a maximum of one year in county jail, fines, probation, community service, or a combination of these penalties. Examples of misdemeanors in California include petty theft, simple assault, public intoxication, driving under the influence (DUI) without injury, and certain drug possession offenses. While misdemeanors are less severe than felonies, they still carry legal consequences and can result in a criminal record. The specific penalties for misdemeanors can vary depending on the nature of the offense and any prior criminal history of the individual involved.
