Best Answer

It depends upon what type of infraction of the law occurred to warrant a misdemeanor charge. The general range is from 1-3 years, unless it pertains to an issue such as a "hate crime" or personal injury. In regards to a minor, records of criminal offense will either be expunged or sealed depending on individual circumstances, when the minor reaches the legal age of majority which in California is 18.
