Crimes are classified into two categories: misdemeanors and felonies. Misdemeanors are the less severe of the two types of offenses. In Michigan, there are different levels of misdemeanors. There are misdemeanors that are only punishable by a jail sentence of 93 days or less. In some traffic misdemanor offenses, the offender receives a ticket and there is no warrant for his or her arrest. For some misdemeanors such as drunk driving, domestic violence, assault and battery, the accused offender can be arrested. A jail sentence for a misdemeanor typically does not exceed one year, though they can sometimes be longer. Other potential penalties for misdemeanors include fines and probation.
