Are Misdemeanor Criminal Charges Serious?

ALL criminal charges are Serious! Whether you are charged in Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, or any other jurisdiction, criminal charges can seriously affect many of your rights, including your freedom. An A Misdemeanor in Kentucky is punishable by up to $500 fine and 12 months of incarceration. If you think that a misdemeanor is not serious, consider spending the next year in jail. Even seemingly innocuous charges, or cases that you can simply pay a fine, are criminal and paying the fine will be the same as pleading guilty to the charge. These charges will be placed on your criminal record. In these tough economic times, many employers run criminal background checks and those often become a basis for hiring one candidate over another. Additionally, criminal convictions can be used against you in future criminal cases, traffic offenses, divorces, and child custody disputes. Criminal defendants should know their rights before proceeding. In Northern Kentucky, if you pay a fine or otherwise plead guilty, you will likely not be able to have the charges expunged and removed from your record for at least 5, and generally 7, years. If you have questions about any criminal charges, you should contact Michael Bouldin at the Bouldin Law Firm by calling 859-581-6453 or email at [email protected]
