There are two ways you can receive a misdemeanor. First, is by receiving a misdemeanor summons. Most often, a person receives a ticket that lists the misdemeanor charges. Second, a person can receive a misdemeanor by being arrested, depending on the type of misdemeanor.
Technically, a misdemeanor is any crime other than a felony. Felonies are crimes that may carry a sentence of hard labor. Misdemeanors in Louisiana generally carry a potential sentence of up to six moths in parish jail.
Misdemeanors should not be taken lightly. Many misdemeanor convictions may be enhanceable, meaning that a subsequent charge may become a felony. The judge can put you in jail for up to six months on a single charge. An experienced criminal defense attorney is necessary to defend these charges
