What Is a Misdemeanor in Nebraska?
A misdemeanor is a criminal offense that is less serious than a felony and is punishable by up to one year or less in jail. In Nebraska, misdemeanors are divided into five classes based on the seriousness of the crime, with class 1 misdemeanors being the most serious.
Class 1 misdemeanors are punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. Class 2 misdemeanors are punishable by up to six months in jail and/or a fine up to $1,000, and class 3 misdemeanors are punishable by up to 90 days in jail and/or a fine up to $500.
