Misdemeanor Lawyer in Phoenix

In Arizona, someone charged with a misdemeanor crime can face up to six months in a local or county jail depending on the crime, as well as a fine of up to $2,500. Misdemeanors fall under one of three designations, class 1, 2, and 3, with 3 being the least serious and 1 being the most serious. In cases where the court does not designate a misdemeanor, the crime will be punished as if it was a class 2 misdemeanor.

Class 3 Misdemeanor

Someone charged with a class 3 misdemeanor can face a fine of up to $500 and up to 30 days in jail.

Class 2 Misdemeanor

Someone charged with a class 2 misdemeanor can face a fine of up to $750 and up to four months in jail.

Class 1 Misdemeanor

Someone charged with a class 1 misdemeanor can face a fine of up to $2,500 and up to six months in jail.

For certain drug crimes, someone convicted of a misdemeanor can face additional fines depending on the number of times they have been convicted and what crime they committed (see AZ Rev Stat § 13-821).
