What is the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?

One of the most commonly asked questions by human resources departments regarding background checks is how to determine which crimes are the most serious. Criminal records found on a background check should be weighed by the particular job position being filled, but the courts do have some general classifications of guidance.  A criminal record may show that someone has either a misdemeanor or a felony and it’s important to know the difference.

 Generally, those who receive sentences for misdemeanors spend a year or less in a local or county jail. Felonies are the more serious of the offenses, resulting in greater sentencing of more than a year in prison or the death penalty.

 

Examples of Misdemeanors:                                     Examples of Felonies:
Petty Theft                                                                     Burglary
Simple Assault                                                               Aggravated Assault/ Rape
Domestic Violence                                                         Murder/Manslaughter
Indecent Exposure                                                         Arson
Minor Drug Offenses                                                      Drug Distribution
Prostitution                                                                     Fraud
