What is the main difference between a misdemeanor and a felony in Arizona?

Generally, more minor crimes are classified as misdemeanors, punishable by no more than one year in jail. Possession of marijuana in small amounts, a petty theft crime or first-time DUIs are misdemeanors.

Felonies, on the other hand are serious criminal offenses that result in one year or more in a state or federal prison.
