Penalties for Arizona’s Class Three Misdemeanors.
Prison cannot be imposed on misdemeanor convictions; nevertheless, jail may be imposed. Arizona’s class three misdemeanors carry a maximum of one month in jail. If ordering less than one month in jail, the judge may impose up to one year of probation. Fines, assessments, fees, and surcharges may be imposed. With any jail, defendants must pay for jail costs, unless the judge waives jail fees.
