Maryland Crimes & Their Punishments

The two primary categories of crimes are misdemeanors and felonies. A misdemeanor is considered to be a less serious type of crime and most states establish misdemeanor punishments as less than one year in prison. Other than light jail time, misdemeanors can also be punished by monetary fines.

Examples of misdemeanor crimes in Maryland include:

  • Disorderly conduct
  • DUIs
  • Indecent exposure
  • Open container violations
  • Petty theft
  • Public intoxication
  • Speeding
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism

A felony is considered to be a more serious offense. Typically, states and federal government define a felony as any crime that results in the offender receiving one or more years in prison as punishment. However, there are several states that consider any crime resulting in a prison sentence as a felony.

Examples of felonies in Maryland include:

  • Arson
  • Drug trafficking
  • First-degree burglary
  • First-degree murder
  • Fraud
  • Manslaughter
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Second-degree rape
