Taking Misdemeanor Charges Seriously

While a misdemeanor may not present the long-term consequences a felony charge carries, we understand the importance of taking these charges seriously. In the state of Tennessee, misdemeanor charges are divided into three categories, Class A, Class B and Class C, with Class A misdemeanors being some of the most serious.

The most common Class A misdemeanors in Tennessee include:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Possession of controlled substances
  • Theft
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence

Misdemeanor crimes are typically punishable by fines, restitution and community service, but punishments can also include jail time or up to a year in prison. In addition, a conviction for a misdemeanor crime can end up on your criminal record and might be discovered during background checks for schools, licenses, job applications and rental or housing applications.

The Experience To Handle Serious Criminal Felony Charges

With decades of combined experience, our attorneys have handled the defense of clients who have been charged with:

  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Sexual assault and rape
  • Aggravated assault
  • Drug trafficking
  • White collar crimes
  • Homicide and murder

In addition to fines and restitution, felony crimes are punishable by a year or more in prison. The state of Tennessee also classifies felonies by seriousness, with Class A felonies being the most serious and violent crimes. Convictions for Class A felonies can result in a prison sentence ranging anywhere from 15 to 60 years. Class E felonies are the least serious but are still punishable by one to six years in prison.
