Gross Misdemeanor Helping You Tackle Legal Challenges With Experience & Passion

Seattle Gross Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer

Let an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney Fight for You

There are two types of misdemeanors in Washington: misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors. Since gross misdemeanors are considered more serious than plain or simple misdemeanors, a conviction carries harsher criminal penalties, such as a longer jail sentence.

If you or a loved one is facing a gross misdemeanor charge in Seattle, let Thorley Defense Law help you avoid serious criminal penalties or getting convicted. With nine years of experience, Attorney Rebecca Thorley has handled thousands of cases throughout Washington State. We can investigate your arrest, gather and review evidence, and help you obtain the most favorable result in court.

Contact the firm today at (206) 202-8250 to speak with a Seattle gross misdemeanor defense attorney.

The Difference Between Misdemeanors & Gross Misdemeanors

As we mentioned before, a plain misdemeanor is less serious compared to a gross misdemeanor. Getting convicted of a gross misdemeanor is punishable by a jail term of up to 364 days and a maximum fine of $5,000, while a misdemeanor conviction carries a maximum jail sentence of 90 days and a fine of up to $1,000.

Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor, if the offense involved the theft of money or property, the judge may order you to pay restitution to the victim, rather than a fine. The restitution amount may be twice as much as the amount you allegedly obtained from the offense.

In addition, a gross misdemeanor conviction can lead to a criminal record. After serving your sentence, getting a job or professional license, finding housing, or taking advantage of other opportunities in life can be extremely difficult.
