  1. Best answer

    Someone facing those charges should hire an attorney. While some of those are felony charges, which are very serious, often times first time felony offenders can stay out of jail by either diversion pleas or having the felonies amended down to misdemeanors. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible.


  2. Burglary II and III are felonies; Criminal Mischief I is also a felony. Drug para. is a misdemeanor. Class C felony: 5-10 years: Class D felony : 1-5 years: Class A misdemeanor: up to 365 days and/or up to $500.00 fine plus courts costs.
