Anderlik Law, Chtd., is experienced in handling cases from minor traffic tickets to Category A felonies.
- Traffic Tickets
- Traffic tickets are technically misdemeanor offenses, but they do not affect your criminal record in the same way that other misdemeanor offenses do. Depending on the type of ticket and your driving record, traffic tickets may require fines, classes, and result in points on your driving record that may affect your continued ability to have a driver’s license.
- Misdemeanor offenses are punishable by up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. Misdemeanors include charges like simple battery, some domestic violence cases, some DUI cases, petit larceny, trespassing, possession of drug paraphernalia, and others.
- Gross Misdemeanors
- Gross Misdemeanor offenses are punishable by up to 364 days in jail and up to a $2,000 fine.
- Felony offenses are punishable by one year or more in prison and fines over $2,000. Felony convictions are serious and can affect your future rights and privileges. Felonies are graded in levels from A to E, with A being the most serious (with the potential for a life sentence or, in some murder cases, capital punishment) and E being the least serious (with probation standard in most instances).
