Understanding Misdemeanors

Washington has a fairly basic system for classifying misdemeanors. Unlike felony offenses, which are assigned different "classes," misdemeanors instead have two categories: misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors. Gross misdemeanors are considered more serious and come with harsher penalties.

Penalties for a misdemeanor conviction can include:

  • Up to 90 days in jail
  • Up to $1,000 in fines

Penalties for a gross misdemeanor can include:

  • Up to 364 days in jail
  • Up to $5,000 in fines

In some cases, depending on the offense, additional penalties can be levied against the accused, as well. Common examples of misdemeanors include prostitution, shoplifting, and disorderly conduct. Driving under the influence is the most common example of a gross misdemeanor.
