Misdemeanors

Missouri Misdemeanor Attorneys

Misdemeanors are crimes punishable in Missouri with a maximum of one year in jail. A misdemeanor crime is less serious than a felony. Missouri categorizes misdemeanors into three classes:

  • Class A misdemeanor: up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,000.
    • Examples: possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana, domestic assault in the third degree, and shoplifting items valued at less than $500.
  • Class B misdemeanor: up to six months in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
    • Examples: driving while intoxicated and first degree trespassing.
  • Class C misdemeanor: up to 15 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $700.
    • Examples: illegal gambling and peace disturbance.
  • Class D misdemeanor: a fine of up to $500.
