What are the Penalties for Misdemeanor Crimes in California?
Under state law, misdemeanor crimes are punished by up to one year in county jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. The law designates punishments by the crime in California, and not by a class system like in other states. This means that in each unique case, there is a specific statute governing how the matter is prosecuted.
