A misdemeanor is a crime than you can serve up to 11 months and 29 days in jail. A misdemeanor conviction is permanent on your record, and you can never get it expunged. However, if you are acquitted of the charges, you can avoid having them on your permanent record through expungement. That is why it is important to take the charges seriously and hire an attorney to represent your interests in the case.
