Fighting Convictions and Penalties in Criminal Court

Every criminal case comes with potential penalties that can be serious and long-lasting. The following are possible criminal penalties under Indiana law:

  • Class C misdemeanor = 60 days in jail and fines up to $500
  • Class B misdemeanor = 180 days in jail and fines up to $1,000
  • Class A misdemeanor = One year in jail and fines up to $5,000
  • Level 6 felony = Six months to two and a half years in prison and fines up to $10,000
  • Level 5 felony = One to six years in prison and fines up to $10,000
  • Level 4 felony = Two to 12 years in prison and fines up to $10,000
  • Level 3 felony = Three to 16 years in prison and fines up to $10,000
  • Level 2 felony = Ten to 30 years in prison and fines up to $10,000
  • Level 1 felony = 20 to 40 years in prison and fines up to $10,000

In addition to fines and imprisonment, criminal convictions can result in many lasting consequences that may persist long after you finish serving your sentence. Such consequences include:

  • Losing your job
  • Difficulty getting hired for a new job
  • Expulsion or rejection from an educational program
  • Loss or denial of a professional license
  • Difficulty finding housing to rent
  • Sex offender registration

It is important to prevent a conviction whenever possible to avoid these real and long-term consequences. If you already have a conviction on your record, our lawyers can evaluate whether you might qualify for an expungement, so you do not experience consequences for years to come.
