Misdemeanor Crimes and Penalties in West Virginia

While most states designate different misdemeanor crimes as separate classes, West Virginia operates on a crime-by-crime basis. For instance, West Virginia considers assault and battery without serious injury a Class A Misdemeanor in some states. This scenario means that penalties can include up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000. In West Virginia, however, the crime would result in penalties agreed on by state lawmakers. However, the general breakdown for misdemeanor penalties includes:

  • Class 1: Up to 12 months in county jail and a possible fine of up to $2,500
  • Class 2: Up to six months in county jail and a possible fine of up to $1,000
  • Class 3: Fines of up to $500
  • Class 4: Fines of up to $250

Expungement Circumstances and Conditions

The state of West Virginia does allow expungement, but only under specific circumstances. Even then, a judge who grants expungement only does so with conditions. A citizen must

  • Have received a full executive pardon
  • Be found ‘not guilty’ of the offense
  • Be a first-time drug offender
  • Be discharged
  • Have had the case dismissed
  • Be between the ages of 18 and 26 (for misdemeanors)
