If you're facing a gross misdemeanor charge, you need the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
A gross misdemeanor is a criminal charge with a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. These types of crimes are more serious than misdemeanors but less serious than felonies. The statute of limitations on gross misdemeanors are two years, meaning the prosecutor has up to two years to file a criminal charge after the alleged criminal act took place.
The most common gross misdemeanor is a DUI. Other gross misdemeanors include reckless driving.
