Some examples of misdemeanor offenses include: simple DUI, petty theft, reckless driving, shoplifting, marijuana possession, harassment, and prostitution. Many criminal offenses in California are actually “wobblers” which means they may be classified as felony or misdemeanor offenses depending upon the particular circumstances of the crime.
