Misdemeanors are more serious than infractions, but less than felonies. Typically, misdemeanors result in a higher fine than pay that committed an offense; or is sentenced to jail, will be for a term of less than one year. If a jail sentence is imposed, it shall be served in the local jail, city or county, rather than in a state or federal prison (penitentiary).
A person convicted of a misdemeanor usually does not lose his right to vote, serve on a jury, a profession that requires a license or serve in the military. Importantly, misdemeanors are not counted as "strikes" in states that have adopted three strikes laws, in either case you need legal advice.
