Many misdemeanor crimes are nonviolent crimes. However, some of these crimes can become felonies if, for example, a weapon was used.
Having a criminal defense attorney represent you is important, as they can fully understand the elements of the charge, the burden of proof for the prosecutor, whether to have an judge or jury trial, how to present a trial, and alternatives to trial. A criminal defense attorney cannot guarantee results, but can properly walk you through this complicated process.
