    Question [=?] What is a Class D Misdemeanor?

    My neighbor said his 15 y.o. son was fingerprinted and booked and charged with a Class D Misdemeanor because of something that happened on the school bus.

    What kind of a crime is that? Is that an adult or juvenile charge? Does it mean the kid will have a criminal record now?

    Feedback [*=*] re: What is a Class D Misdemeanor?

    Depends on state law. Assuming they are in WI, 939.51 of the WI Code classifies misdemeanors, A through C.

    There are felonies classified as D. They actually cover A through I. A class D felony carries a possible punishment of a fine not to exceed $100,000 or imprisonment not to exceed 25 years, or both.

    A class C misdemeanor gets you a fine not to exceed $500 or imprisonment not to exceed 30 days, or both.
