Petty Offenses

Aside from certain traffic offenses, petty offenses are the least serious criminal charges. Petty offenses are less serious than misdemeanor offenses, and are far less serious than felony offenses. Even so, being charged with and convicted of a petty offense can result in serious consequences, including incarceration, extensive educational programs, alcohol/drug monitoring, official supervision, as well as a permanent criminal history. It is wise to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney at the earliest possible time, rather than assuming that being charged with a petty offense presents no real problems. An in-depth free initial consultation with Alexander Garlin will provide you with the information that you need to better assess your legal circumstances and needs.
