State Misdemeanor Sentencing Guidelines

A misdemeanor crime is less serious in comparison with a felony. In general, misdemeanor crimes are distinguished from felonies by the seriousness of injury inflicted on another individual, the monetary value of property taken, or the amount of illegal drugs in a person’s possession and whether there is evidence of intent to sell or distribute the drugs.

The following are the three classes of misdemeanors in Michigan:

  • Misdemeanor punishable by up to 93 days in jail and a fine of up to $500
  • Misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000
  • High court misdemeanors (which are punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $2,000)
