Felonies and Misdemeanors in Maryland
In Maryland, felony charges include violent crimes such as murder, sexual assault, and armed robbery. Other felonies include white-collar crimes like bribery and fraud. Misdemeanors include smaller offenses such as theft under $1,500 or drug possession in small amounts.
Some offenses, such as DUI/DWI, are classified as misdemeanors but carry stiffer penalties compared to many other misdemeanors. Drug charges in Maryland depend on the quantity of controlled substances, paraphernalia, distribution supplies, and any evidence of intent to distribute.
Many crimes have classes or degrees defined by Maryland criminal law. For instance, theft of items or services under $1,500 in value would be a misdemeanor but stealing more than $1,500 brings a felony charge.
