If there ever comes a time when you are charged with a crime, there are important things you should know. Typically, the crime will be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending upon circumstances. California Penal Code Section 17(a) defines a felony as, "a crime that is punishable with death, by imprisonment in the state prison, or notwithstanding any other provision of law, by imprisonment in a county jail under the provisions of subdivision (h) of Section 1170. Every other crime or public offense is a misdemeanor except those offenses that are classified as infractions."
The effects of being convicted of a crime are wide-reaching and should not be taken lightly. Having a criminal background may prevent you from maintaining your current employment or obtaining a job in the future. Having a criminal background may cause problems in obtaining licensing from many of the numerous state or federal agencies (e.g. real estate, nursing, etc.).
