Cases which carry a maximum penalty of 365 days in the county jail (as opposed to a state prison) and/or a fine are considered misdemeanors in Kentucky. Common misdemeanors include possession or sale of small amounts of marijuana, simple assault, theft under $500 and various traffic offenses. While these cases are not as serious as felonies, it remains very important to have quality legal representation. Misdemeanors can result in jail time and will show up on one’s criminal history when seeking employment. John Harralson has an excellent record in terms of producing positive results for clients facing such charges. Moreover, he can help you expunge (erase) old misdemeanors from your criminal record. In these difficult economic times, many people are competing for the same job openings and expunging one’s record has never been more important.
