Misdemeanor vs. Felony Charges

A misdemeanor is a lesser offense than a felony. These are punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. Simple assault, a first-time DUI, minor drug possession, and petty theft are examples of crimes that may be charged as misdemeanors in Las Vegas. Some of these crimes, however, may be charged as felonies in certain situations, such as if the defendant possessed a weapon at the time of the offense or has a prior conviction on his or her criminal record.

A felony can be punishable by imprisonment in a state correctional facility (state prison) on top of fines. Depending on the crime, imprisonment may vary from one year to life in prison or possibly the death penalty in the most extreme cases. Armed robbery, manslaughter, murder and drug trafficking are examples of potential felony offenses.
