While a misdemeanor crime is a less serious than a felony, they are still punishable by up to two years in prison, extensive fines, a permanent criminal record, and other life-changing consequences. If convicted of multiple misdemeanors, the sentences can become progressively harsher. Depending on the value of property taken or damaged, any proof of intent, and any harm caused to another person, a misdemeanor can be placed in one of three classes of severity.
