Misdemeanor
A misdemeanor is a less serious type of crime than a felony and thus generally merits a less stringent punishment. Common misdemeanors include criminal acts such as petty theft, prostitution, disorderly conduct, and vandalism. Offenders may be subject to brief incarceration or civil fines.
