Examples Of Misdemeanors

There are many different criminal offenses that are classified as misdemeanors under Michigan and Wisconsin laws. While there are many similarities, the laws in Wisconsin and the laws in Michigan may differ at times.

Misdemeanor offenses are distinguished from felonies since they generally involve less serious injuries, less value of property stolen, or possession of certain drugs.

Here are a few examples of misdemeanors I typically handle as a criminal defense lawyer.

  • DUI & Alcohol Related Offenses
  • Second-Offense OWI
  • Third-Offense OWI
  • Assault and Battery
  • Domestic Violence
  • First-Offense Possession of Marijuana
  • Possession of THC or certain other controlled substances
  • Operating a Vehicle after Revocation/ Suspension
  • Operating a Vehicle with Restricted Controlled Substances
  • Theft of Movable Property
  • Retail Theft
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Resisting/ Obstructing an Officer
