What Is Considered a Misdemeanor in Nebraska?
There are two types of crimes in Nebraska: felonies and misdemeanors. Misdemeanors are generally less serious crimes, but they can still carry serious penalties, such as jail time and steep fines. Misdemeanors are generally punishable by up to one year in jail and/or $1,000 in fines. However, some misdemeanors can carry harsher penalties if aggravating factors are present.
There are many misdemeanor crimes in Nebraska, including:
- Domestic violence threats
- Certain drug possession crimes
- Certain gambling offenses
- Petty theft (theft of less than $500)
- Second-degree criminal trespass
- Third-degree assault
- Underage tobacco use
- Unlawful possession crimes
- Violating a protective order
- Driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs (DUI)
Being convicted of a misdemeanor can significantly impact your life. In addition to possible jail time and expensive fines, you may have to pay additional court costs and fees and could be placed on probation. A conviction will also result in a permanent criminal record, accessible to the public. This can make it extremely difficult to obtain a job, housing, and loans. You could suffer irreparable damage to your reputation and other far-reaching consequences.
