Misdemeanors vs. felonies
Even laypeople with a passing knowledge of the law know that being charged with a felony is far worse than being charged with a misdemeanor. But despite what you may think you know from watching Law & Order or CSI, the scale of severity is often misleading. Felonies usually carry harsher penalties, such as longer jail sentences and steeper fines, but the crimes may not always seem to fit their legal designation.
