What is the Difference Between a Misdemeanor and a Felony?
The difference between a felony and a misdemeanor is the time that might have to be served behind bars. Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by up to a year in the county jail. Felonies are punishable by a year or more in a California state prison. There are many collateral consequences that accompany a criminal conviction. The consequences may differ such as your right to own a firearm, the jobs you may not be able to work, and damage to your reputation in the community, and many others.
