Misdemeanor Crimes in San Diego, CA

What You Should Know About Misdemeanor Offenses

If you or a loved one has recently been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor offense, your first step should be to immediately obtain the services of a highly competent San Diego criminal defense lawyer to help defend you and keep your rights protected. Relying on an inexperienced legal counselor or choosing to waive your right to representation altogether could be detrimental to your case and produce a very unfavorable result.

While a misdemeanor crime like shoplifting, trespassing or petty theft may seem like a relatively simple criminal matter to deal with, it is important to understand that if you are convicted, you could face up to incarceration and a lifetime of having a criminal record that can prevent you from being employed, leasing property and any other future opportunity that is contingent on the outcome of a background check. All criminal charges can result in devastating, far-reaching penalties and should not be treated lightly.
