A misdemeanor charge can have far reaching consequences.  Whether it be a petty theft charge, a DUI, or a misdemeanor battery charge, any charge carries with it the possibility of significant jail time, thousands of dollars in fines, and a charge on your criminal record that could prevent you from getting into school, getting a job, or getting licensed in your chosen profession.
