The County section of the Criminal Division keeps records for the court system primarily related to Misdemeanor and Criminal Traffic.  Misdemeanor cases are crimes of a lower degree than Felony cases. They are punishable by a fine, court costs, probation, or imprisonment in the county jail. 

Misdemeanors are classified into two degrees:

  • First Degree Misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in the county jail.

  • Second Degree Misdemeanor is punishable by up to 60 days in the county jail.
