What You Need To Know About Wobblers

Wobblers are offenses that can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony; the offense can wobble from one to another.

If you are charged with a wobbler offense as a felony, there is an opportunity to reduce it to a misdemeanor. This is an issue of negotiation for your attorney and the prosecutor. The prosecutor will look to the facts of the crime and also your criminal history when considering this resolution.

If you have been convicted of a felony that is a wobbler, Proper Defense can help you to get it reduced to a misdemeanor. (see Reducing a Felony to a Misdemeanor)
