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. This is not the case. When your rights and freedoms are at stake, you need to retain the aggressive services of a St. Louis criminal defense lawyer that will stop at nothing to fight for your rights.

As former police officers and a prosecuting attorney, our criminal defense attorneys have a unique perspective in every criminal defense case. Our attorneys know the proper steps to protect your rights and can quickly determine if your rights were violated. Get started by calling our offices as soon as possible.

At Millikan Wright, LLC, we represent clients facing misdemeanor charges, including but not limited to:

  • Assault
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Disturbing the peace

Misdemeanor crimes are considered less serious than felony crimes and generally have less severe punishment associated with them. However, these penalties can still include incarceration, fines, and other punitive actions. Misdemeanor crimes have different degrees of seriousness (Class A, Class B, Class C), depending on the crime.

The class of seriousness for a misdemeanor crime can also determine the potential sentencing that can apply to your case. For more St. Louis misdemeanor crimes, you can find yourself up against 15 days to one year in jail and fines ranging from $300 to $1,000. When you have been accused of a crime, any punishment is too much. Let our legal team, made up of former police officers and prosecuting attorneys help protect your rights.
