The difference between felonies and misdemeanors
Of the two general types of crimes, felonies are considered the most serious. These offenses may include illegal acts such as violent crimes, sex crimes, theft, property crimes, drug crimes and fraud. In most cases, a conviction carries severe consequences, including prison time, large fines and probation.
A misdemeanor, while generally less serious, can still result in jail time if it’s not your first offense — in addition to fines, probation, community service and other requirements. Common types of misdemeanors are first-offense driving under the influence (DUI) charges, reckless driving, battery, theft, domestic violence and drug possession.
