If an individual commits a misdemeanor, you can contact your local police department and report the crime.
As far as how many misdemeanors does it take to make a felony?
Short Answer: Depends on the misdemeanor.
- A misdemeanor is a crime that is punishible by less than 1 year incarceration.
- A felony is a crime that is punishable by 1 year or more incarceration.
If an individual commits several misdemeanors, he may never actually commit a crime that equals a felony. There are situations, where repeated offenses are elements of a crime which is a felony.
