Crimes in Michigan are categorized as misdemeanors or felonies. A misdemeanor is a relatively less serious offense than a felony. A misdemeanor crime is punishable by a maximum of one year in jail, and/or a maximum $1,000 fine. On the other hand, a felony offense is much more serious and can result in lengthy prison sentences of years and years, practically unlimited fines, a permanent criminal record and many other severe consequences.
