What are the Penalties for Class 2 Misdemeanors in Arizona?
While prison cannot be imposed for an Arizona misdemeanor, jail is possible. Class two misdemeanors carry anywhere from no penalty to 4 months jail. If a judge orders less than four months jail, there can be as much as two years of probation. In addition, fines, assessments, fees, and surcharges are commonly assessed. When jail is imposed, defendants must pay jail costs, unless waived by the judge.
