After you are convicted of a misdemeanor, you are often put on probation, either formal or informal, depending on the severity of the crime.

If you were convicted then you may have been put on probation or given a fine. Talk to your public defender or the court clerk to make sure.

These types of convictions are generally less of an offence and may not require jail time, but usually require a monetary payment, hence the person is on their way home.

When an individual obtains a misdemeanor it goes on their record and although it is not as serious as a felony, misdemeanors are not good.

I was also convicted of a misdemeanor, I got ticket. I had to take the ticket in front of the magistrate and plead guilty, the magistrate decided to give me 200 dollar fine! If you didn't get jail time or comunity service it could be a fine or probation.
