Criminal law in the United States is distinctly classified into many statutes, but they are largely bracketed in two types – felony and misdemeanor. Felony is any criminal offense that calls for a minimum imprisonment of twelve months. Misdemeanor is any criminal offense that calls for a maximum imprisonment of twelve months. In other words, felony is a serious criminal offense, and misdemeanor is a less serious criminal offense.
