I started off a little hesitant reaching out to a lawyer being my first ever ticket, however I took a chance with Joe and his team based on the reviews online. I am proud and happy to be apart of those great reviews I saw. Joe is a true professional, he reassured from the beginning that my tickets would be dismissed and me myself didn't have to do anything with the courts he handled it all. I put my faith in Joe and he returned the favor and I am forever thankful. Shoutout Joe and his team for making my life a bit easier!

Washington Felonies & Misdemeanors

Criminal charges are broken down into misdemeanors, which are less serious, and felonies, with varying degrees of seriousness. Misdemeanor convictions are generally punished by a jail sentence of up to less than a year while felonies are punishable by prison sentences of a year or more.

Misdemeanor Cases

A misdemeanor is often regarded as a minor criminal offense. Examples of simple misdemeanors are simple possession of marijuana, shoplifting, and disorderly conduct. A simple misdemeanor carries penalties of up to 90 days in jail and fines of up to $1,000. A gross misdemeanor is a more serious offense. Driving while under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs as a first offense is a gross misdemeanor. These offenses carry penalties of up to one year in jail and fines of up to $5,000. Some misdemeanors carry mandatory sentencing per the RCW. Penalties often depend on the nature of the offense, any aggravating factors involved, and the prior criminal history of the offender.

Felony Cases

Felony crimes are much more serious than misdemeanors and include such offenses as rape, armed robbery, burglary, and sales or distribution of illegal drugs. Class A felonies, which are the most serious, are punishable by prison sentences which can include life, as well as fines of up to $50,000. Class B felonies carry penalties of up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000. Class C felonies are punishable by up to 5 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
