In the State of Washington, crimes are divided into various categories of misdemeanors and felonies depending upon the nature and seriousness of the accusations. All criminal convictions include the possibility of incarceration and fines.
Simple misdemeanors are the least serious criminal offenses and carry a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Gross misdemeanors are the next level of serious crimes and carry a maximum sentence of 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. Regardless of the severity, have a criminal defense lawyer by your side can make all the difference.
