Misdemeanor Crimes in St. Louis
You Future Is Too Important Not To Fight For
A misdemeanor crime is one that is considered a lesser criminal charge
than a felony. Those convicted of this crime generally face a smaller
fine and spend less than one year in prison. Since the consequences for
these crimes seem to be minor, many people mistakenly believe that misdemeanors
do not need strong and aggressive criminal defense.

services of a
