The penalties that are imposed for violent crimes can include years in prison, and sharing space with the state's worst offenders. If you are charged with a misdemeanor offense, such as assault or other violent crime, you may be forced to pay expensive fines and serve time in county jail, with added requirements such as court-mandated anger management classes that must be completed.
