There are two types of Criminal Law: Misdemeanors and Felonies.
A misdemeanor is an offense that is considered a lower level criminal offense, such as minor assaults, traffic offenses, or petty thefts. The penalty for the misdemeanor crime is typically one year or less.
A felony crime involves more serious offenses. Some examples of felonies include murder, manslaughter, dealing drugs, rape, robbery, and arson. Felonies often carry more than a year depending on the offense and jurisdiction.
