Why It’s Important To Take Misdemeanor Charges Seriously

Many people who face misdemeanor charges share the same misconceptions: “It’s just a misdemeanor. It’s not a big deal. It won’t impact my criminal record. I won’t go to jail.”

If you were arrested in connection with any misdemeanor, it’s critical to contact an experienced Cleveland defense attorney who can help you fight the charges. Misdemeanors may carry less severe penalties than felonies, but you can still end up in jail.

Six Months In Jail For A Petty Crime?

At the law office of Harvey B. Bruner Co., L.P.A., we know that some prosecutors are aggressive with punishments. We’ve seen individuals walk into court without representation thinking they won’t get hurt, and they spend as many as 180 days in jail.

With strong legal counsel, misdemeanors do not need to ruin your life or your criminal record. We work with individuals throughout Ohio facing misdemeanor charges, including:

  • DUI
  • Theft
  • Domestic violence
  • Simple assault
  • Harassment
  • Driving with a suspended license

All misdemeanor arrests must be taken seriously. A conviction could result in job loss, a suspended or revoked driver’s license, being unable to travel to Canada and even being unable to leave Ohio without permission.
