Tennessee Class B Misdemeanor Attorney
Since misdemeanor offenses are less severe than felony offenses, some people make the mistake of not taking their charges seriously. However, while a Class B misdemeanor will not lead to a lifetime sentence, you will still face harsh consequences and have a criminal record that can negatively impact your personal, work, and social life for years to come. If you get arrested for a Class B misdemeanor or any misdemeanor crime, any delays in building your defense can immensely harm your case.
Joshua T. Crain, our Tennessee Class B misdemeanor attorney, has almost two decades of experience trying and defending criminal cases. He knows how local prosecutors and courts work, so you can rest easy knowing that he will do everything in his power to obtain the most favorable result for your specific case.
In Tennessee, there are three degrees or classes of misdemeanors, including Classes C, B, and A. Class A misdemeanors are considered the most serious misdemeanors, Class C misdemeanors are the least serious, and Class B misdemeanors are the second most serious misdemeanor offenses. The potential penalties for a Class B misdemeanor charge is six months incarceration and a fine of not more than $500. Common Class B misdemeanor crimes are:
- Aggravated Criminal Trespass
- Indecent Exposure
- Disorderly Conduct
- Assault with Offensive Contact
- Reckless Driving
- Driving with a Suspended License
Whether you have been charged with a Class B misdemeanor or a lesser or higher offense, attorney Joshua T. Crain can:
- Ensure you fully understand what you stand to face if you get convicted.
- Work promptly to collect evidence, assess the prosecutor’s case, and build a strong defense for your case.
- Investigate your case carefully, which includes the events leading up to, during, and after your arrest.
Our Tennessee Class B misdemeanor attorney will also negotiate to have your case dismissed, a favorable plea deal, or reduced charges with the prosecution if possible. If negotiations fail because the prosecution is intent on prosecuting your case, we will be ready to try your case in court and argue your defense to secure lighter penalties or an acquittal or raise alternative sentencing options, such as community service, probation, or an alcohol or drug treatment program.
