In the state of Tennessee, misdemeanors and felonies are put into different categories. The penalties range from a $50 fine to life in prison, depending on the mitigating circumstances in your case. Don't expose yourself to hefty fines, lengthy jail sentences and consequences that could hinder your future.
A misdemeanor offense is one where an individual is charged with a crime which carries a term of jail up to eleven months and twenty nine days and a fine up to 500.00. Some common misdemeanor offenses are: public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
A felony, however, can have serious consequences, including imprisonment beyond one year, affect employability and prevent a person from being able to vote in elections for public office. Anyone charged with either type of of offense should seek the advice of attorneys at McAfee & McAfee for legal representation from the time of investigation or arrest through the court proceedings until their conclusion. Not having an experienced attorney can prove fatal and reduce the chances of successful reintegration back into the community.
