Penalties for Misdemeanors

Some of the most common misdemeanor charges in Georgia include DUI, public drunkenness, trespassing, certain domestic violence situations, prostitution, and vandalism. A criminal conviction for these offenses has the potential to affect many areas of your life beyond the jail time, fines, and other criminal penalties.

A misdemeanor conviction may result in the loss of:

  • Driving privileges
  • Your right to possess a firearm
  • Educational opportunities
  • Financial aid
  • Employment opportunities
  • Housing

When you are convicted of a crime, even if the charges aren’t serious, you will have a permanent criminal record. This can affect your ability to gain employment, be promoted, or pursue higher education. If your license is suspended and you must drive for work, you could lose your job. Even if your job does not require driving, your employment can be jeopardized by a jail sentence.
