Misdemeanor Classifications in Washington

Misdemeanors in Washington are punishable by a potential jail sentence of less than a year. There are two main types of misdemeanors: (plain/simple) misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors.

When it comes to plain misdemeanors, a conviction can result in a maximum jail sentence of 90 days and a fine not exceeding $1,000. A gross misdemeanor carries harsher penalties.

If a misdemeanor offense involves the theft of money or property, the defendant may be ordered to pay restitution to the alleged victim, rather than a fine. The amount of restitution is typically twice the amount of the value of the stolen property.
