About

Criminal activity is typically categorized as a felony or a misdemeanor. This all depends on how the crime appears in a state's penal code, the vehicle code, or the health and safety code (for drug offenses). So what crimes define themselves as a felony or misdemeanor. First, we will have to look at what exactly these each entail.

Theft

Theft is an unlawful taking of another person’s property with the intention of not returning it. A thief conducts his operation in stealth when no one is around as he does not want to attract any attention. Therefore theft is simply taking something from someone without the intention of returning it back to the owner. Embezzlement is also a form of theft where an employee takes away money meant for the employer or other employees for his own use.

Prison Sentence

Some state laws require the judges to impose what are called "determinate" prison sentences. A determinate sentence is a fixed-term sentence pronounced by a judge. For example, a defendant sentenced to "30 days in county jail" or "five years in state prison" has received a determinate sentence.

About

An expungement of an arrest, diversion or conviction for a criminal or traffic offense seals the record and allows you to be treated as if the arrest, diversion or conviction never happened. Also, you do not need to disclose expunged arrests, diversions or convictions when applying for employment, seeking a loan, or applying for admission to a school.
