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)

  • I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense.

    “When we got the news that our grandson was facing very serious charges, we were devastated. We didn’t know any criminal defense attorneys and didn’t know who to turn to. After speaking to a few people, three of them recommend attorney James White. Mr. White was able to meet with us right away, which was a relief because we had so many questions. The whole ordeal of what our grandson was being charged with was very stressful on us, both emotionally and financially. Mr. White was kind and understanding. He kept us informed and was available throughout the case for any questions or concerns we had. Mr. White fought hard to achieve the best possible outcome for our grandson, and in the end his efforts and determination brought our grandson the best results we could have hoped for. What stood out to us is how down to earth Mr. White is. He handles himself in a professional and respectful manner and will work hard to get the results his client needs. I’d also like to thank the support staff of White Law PLLC who were kind, polite, and helpful whenever we called. I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense.”

  • Thank you White Law for what you did!

    “People v. A.D. (2014) - "My son was facing his third gun charge. His first lawyer died on Christmas Day. Jamie White took over the case when it was already in a late phase of the case. My son was serving a year from a prior gun charge and Mr. White had almost all of the charges thrown out. My son was sentenced to nine months with time served, nothing except a mark on his record. Mr. White got him from being in jail with a third gun charge looking at 10 to 15 years with habitual to a plea to a gun charge with time served for nine months. Thank you White Law for what you did!"”
