Misdemeanor crimes often come with significantly less penalty than other more severe crimes. However, if you are charged and convicted with a misdemeanor, you will have a criminal record. Criminal records are often requested on job applications and once you have a record you are obligated to disclose that information if requested to do so during an employment search.
