The Consequences of a Conviction in Georgia

There are two different forms of misdemeanor crimes in the state of Georgia: regular misdemeanors and those that are high and aggravated.

Regular misdemeanors may include crimes such as simple battery, and may be punished by:

  • A maximum fine of $1,000
  • A maximum sentence of one year in county jail
  • The combination of fines and jail time
  • A maximum of one year in a court-approved diversion center

On the other hand, high and aggravated misdemeanors, which can include misdemeanor crimes committed more than once or those that are particularly violent or harmful to others, elicit more serious consequences.

Punishment for a conviction may include:

  • A maximum fine of $5,000
  • A maximum of one year in county jail
  • The combination of fines and jail time
  • Court-ordered probation

Even if you are not convicted and sentenced for the crime of which you are accused, your brush with the criminal justice system could follow you around for the rest of your life and have negative consequences on your professional, financial, and personal life for years to come. When you call Sherota Law for help, we will evaluate your case for free and do whatever we can to protect your rights.
