    Answered . If the offer is 3 years of probation, it must be a class A misdemeanor that the DA is offering. As said before, its not a great deal, but it depends on other factors that only your attorney knows, like the strength of the prosecutor's case, availability of complaining witnesses, and even the paperwork. The difference between a Crim Mischief 3 and 4 could be only a couple of dollars.
