MISDEMEANORS

The general definition of what constitutes a misdemeanor can be found in California Penal Code § 17(b).

Every other crime or public offense not defined as a felony is a misdemeanor except those offenses that are classified as infractions.

Except in cases where a different punishment is prescribed by any law of this state, every offense declared to be a misdemeanor is punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding six months, or by fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both.
