About North Wales, PA
North Wales is located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and is a suburb of Philadelphia. North Wales is a small borough with a total area of only 0.06 square miles and a population of about 3,229 (as of 2010), and is considered to be a part of the North Penn Valley. North Wales was actually settled by immigrants from North Wales in Wales, and was part of a 1702 William Penn land grant. Historically, the area was a small farming community, and today contains an important route to Philadelphia.
In the 1850s, North Wales began to grow more quickly because of the introduction of the North Pennsylvania Railroad, with service between Bethlehem and Philadelphia. The median income for a family in North Wales was about $63,235, and about 54 percent of the households consisted of married couples as of 2010.
Misdemeanor crimes are those that are considered to be less serious than felony-level charges. The primary difference between the two types of crimes are the potential penalties that may attach. While felony-level crimes will carry more severe penalties, misdemeanors should still be taken seriously, and can result in jail time and substantial monetary fines. Both types of crime will also appear on your permanent criminal record. Misdemeanor crimes are, however, generally more easily expunged than penalty crimes. Regardless of the severity of the crime alleged, you will still need a criminal defense attorney to help minimize the damage that arrest and conviction can cause.
Whether you may be eligible for probation will depend upon the severity of the crime alleged and your past criminal record. Probation is essentially a supervisory period that may be required instead of jail time. The court will require that you satisfy certain conditions during your probation period, including refraining from any criminal activity, possible drug or alcohol counseling, and other conditions that the court determines to be appropriate in your case. Parole imposes similar restrictions and supervisory conditions but is imposed after you have already served a jail sentence.
