Tacoma Municipal Court, Criminal Penalties, And Your Rights

A gross misdemeanor conviction for a crime like domestic violence, shoplifting, or DUI incurs penalties that include up to a year in jail and fines of $5,000.

Infractions are handled separately from crimes and include parking violations, speeding tickets, and the like. Civil offenses usually focus on the enforcement of code violations, and are also heard by the Tacoma Municipal Court.

The penalties associated with crimes, code violations, and infractions all have a negative impact on the lives of those convicted. These repercussions may not be evident at first, but can be devastating to someone who is unprepared.
