Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, yet more serious than petty offenses. They are usually handled in County Courts, as compared to felonies, which are generally handled in District Courts. Misdemeanors fall into three classes, with Class 1 being the most serious (and hence having the most exposure to a jail sentence), and Class 3 being the least serious.

Harassment and False Reporting are examples of misdemeanor crimes. Other crimes, such as Assault, Trespass and Theft, can be either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on how serious they are alleged to be.
