The criminal justice system in California is broken up into three categories of offenses: infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. The court procedure and your rights vary depending on what you are charged with. Proper Defense represents people facing any one of the three categories.
Infractions are the lowest level offense and are commonly traffic violations. Infractions are punishable by a fine only; no jail time and no probation.
While a misdemeanor is less serious than a felony conviction, some misdemeanors carry consequences that can affect ones’ gun rights.
A felony is the more serious of the possible offenses. Felonies are punishable by a year or more in jail or prison and potentially life in prison or even the death penalty.
