The main difference between a misdemeanor and a felony crime is the punishment—and the collateral consequences. For misdemeanor crime convictions, you face up to one year in jail. However, despite a relatively shorter jail time for a misdemeanor conviction versus a felony conviction, it can have other negative consequences such as mandatory counseling, hefty fines, loss of firearm privileges, sex offender registration, and loss of driving privileges.
