If misdemeanors are compared to felonies, they can be termed as “less heinous” criminal offenses. They often include crimes like petty theft, disorderly conduct, vandalism, public intoxication, etc and may involve lesser punishments than felonies. However, similar to felonies, misdemeanors stay on your criminal record for your entire life. Therefore, if a thorough background check is done, misdemeanors can show up in your criminal history.
Also, if someone runs a background check, and claims that you were convicted of a charge that you didn’t know about, it needs to be addressed. Contact a criminal defense attorney for help.
