Because a conviction results in a criminal record, a misdemeanor charge must be taken seriously. Unless the charge is expunged or non-disclosed (sealed), a misdemeanor will show up on a background check. Once you are convicted, it will stay on your record forever.
Being convicted or accused of a misdemeanor can have devastating consequences. Hiring an experienced Montgomery County Misdemeanor Defense Attorney can make the difference between being found guilty or not guilty.
A misdemeanor case that is dismissed, reduced to a Class C deferred adjudication or results in a not guilty verdict may be eligible for an expunction. A Class A or Class B misdemeanor case with a successful completion of a deferred adjudication may be eligible for non-disclosure (sealing) of criminal history.
