Misdemeanors in Georgia: Important Information

Types of Georgia Misdemeanors Charges

Georgia criminal statutes distinguish between two types of misdemeanor charges:

Usually filed in cases when the homicide allegedly involved “malice aforethought” (meaning that the killing was planned and intentional) or when the homicide occurred in the commission of some other inherently dangerous felony offense (such as a robbery or arson, for instance). Upon conviction, felony murder charges can be punishable by life in prison or even death, depending on the circumstances of the case.

Which are the upgraded or more serious level of misdemeanor charges that can be filed when the accused person has certain priors and/or when the offense allegedly involved greater risk or harm to some other party (like the alleged victim). Generally, in Georgia, the maximum potential penalties that can be imposed for misdemeanors of a high and aggravated nature include up to 1 year in jail and up to $5,000 in fines.

The misdemeanor defense practice at Jason Clark, P.C. has a record of successfully defending people against both of these types of misdemeanor charges, including (but not limited to) those specifically associated with:

  • Property crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Violent crimes
  • Drug crimes
  • Traffic infractions
