A misdemeanor should be taken seriously because a conviction results in a criminal record. A misdemeanor likely will show up on a background check. Once you are convicted or plead guilty, it will remain on your record forever.
Being accused or convicted of a misdemeanor can have devastating effects on your life. For misdemeanor-crimes, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can make the difference between being found guilty or not guilty.
A misdemeanor case that results in a not-guilty verdict or that is dismissed or reduced to a Class C deferred adjudication may be eligible for an expunction. A misdemeanor-case that is a Class A or Class B deferred adjudication may be eligible for ruling of nondisclosure of criminal history.
