Under New York Law, misdemeanors are the least serious criminal charges (offenses or the charges otherwise known as violations are even less serious, but are not classified as crimes) one can face, but even so, they subject the accused to potential periods of incarceration. While not as severe as felony crimes, misdemeanor convictions do come with heavy consequences. A conviction can result in fines and jail time. Also, a misdemeanor conviction does subject a convicted person to a permanent criminal record and therefore, can have a broad and life-long impact for the convicted party.
