There are four levels of offense in Minnesota, namely: petty misdemeanor, misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor, and felony. Of these four, only petty misdemeanor is not considered to be a crime. It is the only type of offense that doesn’t have incarceration as penalty. The offender can only be fined up to a maximum of $300. Examples are possession of a small quantity of marijuana or speeding. However, petty misdemeanors usually come up on background checks and potential employers may take them into account. The other types of offenses are considered to be crimes and can significantly affect a person’s life. Felony is the worst as convicted felons typically have to serve more jail time and the conditions imposed are typically more severe. Other consequences include losing the right to vote, to serve on a jury, or to engage in certain professions like law, teaching, or even serving in the military. That is why it is vital to contact a skilled an experienced criminal defense lawyer as early as possible if accused of a felony.
