A felony is a crime that is punishable with death or by imprisonment in the state prison. Every other crime or public offense is a misdemeanor except those offenses that are classified as infractions. Misdemeanors tend to involve less severe consequences. In California, it is much easier to petition for the expungement of a misdemeanor charge than it is for a felony charge. That is why criminal defense attorneys try to get their clients charges dismissed or reduced to misdemeanor offenses. Convictions for misdemeanor offenses can result in jail time for one year or less, fines of up to $1,000, community service, and probation.
