Fighting Misdemeanor Charges in San Diego, Riverside, and Orange Counties
The state of California divides crimes into two categories: felonies and misdemeanors. Felonies are the more serious of the two, and are punishable by imprisonment in state prison, while misdemeanors are punishable by imprisonment in county jail.
