Misdemeanors -
Call 847-429-8811



IL criminal defense lawyer Stavri Vako tailors his legal strategy based on the type of charges he fights. Misdemeanors come in three classes, with varying sentencing ranges from supervision to jail time. Deferred prosecution is sometimes available, but this outcome is far less likely if the accused does not have the benefit of a good criminal defense attorney.


Misdemeanors are categorized in the following classes

(Class A Misdemeanors)
The most serious misdemeanors can lead to incarceration for up to a year in the county jail and a $2500 fine. Examples include DUI, Possession of Cannabis, Driving on a Suspended License, Theft, Retail Theft, Battery, Resisting Arrest, Prostitution, Soliciting a Prostitute, and Domestic Battery.

(Class B Misdemeanors)
Punishable by up to 180 days in county jail and a $1500 fine.
Examples include Trespass and Aggravated Speeding.

(Class C Misdemeanors)
Punishable by up to 30 days in county jail and a $1500 fine.
Examples include Disorderly Conduct and Assault.
