Just because a crime is common does not mean that it is not serious. Misdemeanor crimes can come with jail time, monetary penalties, and more. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor offense, do not leave your freedom to chance. Attorney Brady Skinner, a Louisiana misdemeanors lawyer is more than capable of handling your case. Let us help defend you in your misdemeanor case.
In Louisiana, misdemeanors are crimes punishable by up to one year in parish or local jail, carry a fine up to one thousand dollars, or both. Misdemeanors are any crime other than a felony. In other words, a misdemeanor crime in Louisiana is any crime that does not carry a sentence of hard labor, death, jail time for one-year or longer, or a fine of $1,000 or more.
“My firm fights misdemeanor charges as aggressively and detailed as a felony charge, when years of freedom is on the line.” -Brady Skinner III

Although misdemeanor offenses do not sound serious, the penalties attached to conviction can have severe consequences for your life. In Louisiana, misdemeanor convictions can come with up to one year in jail as well as a fine up to $1,000.
Depending on the type of misdemeanor offense you are convicted of, these crimes can have additional consequences on your life.
