Misdemeanors in Shelby County Alabama
Misdemeanors are considered low-level offenses. What meets the definition of a misdemeanor crime is determined by the laws in a particular jurisdiction.
Examples of a misdemeanor could be shoplifting, petty theft, marijuana possession, simple assault, etc. Punishment for a misdemeanor can range from probation to up to one year in county jail. These may be considered lesser crimes but if convicted they will stay on your permanent record unless expunged. Do not try to handle your situation without experienced representation.
