What are class A, B, and C misdemeanors?

The federal criminal code in every state recognizes crimes that are less serious than felonies these are called misdemeanors. For example, a person who without authority enters a vehicle, aircraft, watercraft, or snowmobile will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor and get up to one year in jail. Furthermore, shoplifting can be a class B misdemeanor in a particular state, and the person can receive up to six months in jail and a fine of $2,000. Even though Class C misdemeanors are not serious criminal offenses, they will be recorded on the defendant's criminal history.
