You may be under the mistaken impression that misdemeanors aren’t serious crimes that require a rigorous defense. This is simply not the case. Misdemeanor penalties can include stiff fines and jail sentences of up to one year. A misdemeanor conviction can also have a profound effect on your credit and on your ability to find subsequent employment.
Penalties for felony convictions can be much harsher. Penalty convictions often carry lengthy prison sentences as well as fines and public humiliation. The effects on your life and the lives of your loved ones can be devastating. That’s why you need to be aggressive and proactive in your efforts to protect your legal rights when you’re facing any type of criminal charges.

- Unauthorized use of a computer
- Computer trespass
- Computer tampering
- Unlawful duplication of computer-related material
- Criminal possession of computer-related material
Unauthorized use of a computer occurs when someone “… knowingly uses, causes to be used, or accesses a computer, computer service, or computer network without authorization.” It is considered a Class A misdemeanor and can lead to up to one year in jail or three years on probation and a fine of up to $1,000 or twice what the individual gained as a result of that crime.
Computer trespass is when someone “… knowingly uses, causes to be used, or accesses a computer, computer service, or computer network without authorization…” to commit a felony. This is a Class E felony and can result in 1 ½ to 4 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
Computer tampering occurs when someone uses a computer “…without authorization and intentionally alters in any manner or destroys computer data or a computer program of another person.” Depending on the value of the computer and software damaged, computer tampering can range from a Class A misdemeanor to a Class C felony (3 ½ to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000).
“Unlawful duplication…” in either the second or first degree covers crimes such as software piracy and unlawful duplication of copyrighted material and, again depending on the value of the material duplicated, can be either a Class B misdemeanor (up to 3 months in jail and/or $500 fine) or a Class E felony.
“Criminal possession…” is the unlawful possession of practically any medium that can be used on a computer such as an operating system, software, or DVD. This is a Class E felony.

Just how severe the penalties will be depend on the circumstances surrounding your case. You may only be facing misdemeanor charges if you did not seriously injure the victim. However, in some instances you may be charged with felony assault and battery which carries much stiffer penalties. Some examples of what may constitute a felony charge include:
- Assault When One’s Identity Is Concealed
- Assault With A Weapon
- Pointing A Gun At Someone Or Shooting Them
- Committing An Assault That Leaves The Victim Permanently Disabled Or Disfigured
While no assault and battery lawyer can guarantee the outcome of your case, you can rest assured that Arrestny.com will work hard to fight for you and protect your interests. We have a proven track record of defending those who have been charged with many different types of violent crimes. If you are facing assault and battery charges, contact us today at Arrestny.com for an evaluation of your case.
There are several different types of fraud, such as securities fraud. The punishment for securities fraud depends entirely on the severity of the crime. Insider trading is a type of securities fraud that involves a person using insider knowledge about a specific company to benefit monetarily. A similar type of fraud involves instances where an entity gains money due to spreading false information. You can be charged with embezzlement in the event that you take money from a person that you owe a product or service to and improperly use this money without going through with the initial transaction.
Another extremely common type of white collar crime is what is known as tax evasion, which occurs when a person or business doesn’t properly pay their taxes. There are many ways in which this crime can take place, including everything from filling out false information to making it appear as though you owe less taxes to transferring properties in an attempt to avoid paying taxes on them. Money laundering is another type that happens when money that was received illegally is used for standard transactions.
Although a “misdemeanor” may not sound as serious as a “felony,” having a misdemeanor conviction on your record can impact your life for years to come. Depending on the nature of a crime, a misdemeanor conviction can prevent you from obtaining certain types of employment, taking out a mortgage on a home, and can even stop you from getting a scholarship to continue your education.
In the State of New York most less-serious crimes are considered to be either Class B or Class A misdemeanors, where a Class B carries a less harsh punishment than does Class A. Class B misdemeanors, such as prostitution, simple possession of marijuana, or disorderly conduct can result in a fine of not more than $500, up to three months in a city or county jail, or some combination of jail and a fine. A conviction on a more serious Class A misdemeanor criminal charge, such as larceny of less than $1,000 or possession of an unregistered firearm, can result in up to one year’s confinement in a city or county jail, a fine of up to $1,000, or some combination of jail time and a fine.
Since prosecutors are very reluctant to negotiate directly with a defendant in a criminal case, it is necessary to involve a criminal defense lawyer to represent you in such “deal-making” conferences. In many cases, having a charge reduced can result in a substantial saving in the amount of a fine and the possibility of an alternative sentence being imposed.
One such alternative is known as “adjournments in contemplation of dismissal.” In this scenario, a guilty plea will lead to a sentence of probation with the understanding that successful completion of probation will lead to a later dismissal of the misdemeanor charge and even the possibility that the record of the offense will later be “sealed” and thus unavailable to some sources outside the criminal justice system.
Alternative sentences are not available in all cases and are not usually an option for repeat offenders. For those making their first appearance in the criminal justice system, participation in an alternative sentencing program may result in avoiding the creation of a permanent criminal record for a relatively minor offense.
