Misdemeanors in Mississippi

Like most states, Mississippi classifies less serious crimes as misdemeanors. However, if you are convicted of a misdemeanor, you will have a criminal record that can be accessed during a background check for employment or other purposes. Whenever possible, it is better to avoid having a record so as to pursue your future career and life goals without restriction.

We represent clients facing misdemeanor charges that include:

  • Possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana
  • DUI
  • Shoplifting with a value of under $500
  • Petty theft
  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Simple battery

Even if the charges don’t seem very serious and it is your first offense, a skilled criminal defense attorney can be a valuable asset. Our misdemeanors lawyers in the Gulf Coast use a variety of strategies to help minimize the penalties and possibly even keep you out of jail. We have helped first-time non-violent offenders qualify for diversion programs to help them avoid having a criminal record.
