In Arizona criminal cases are categorized as either Misdemeanors or Felonies. Each class of Misdemeanor and Felony carries a different range of possible penalty prescribed by law. Misdemeanors are less serious offenses and are broken down into 3 classes, with a Class 1 being the most serious. The maximum fine allowed under Arizona Law on a Misdemeanor is $2500 plus an 83% surcharge. The maximum jail that a misdemeanor can carry is 6 months, and the maximum term of probation is 3 years.

Felonies are the most serious offenses and are broken down into 6 classes, with 6 being the least serious. A felony can carry prison time, probation, probation with up to one year of county jail as a term of probation, and up to $150,000 fines with up to 83% surcharge.

In Arizona, once a person has 1 or more felony convictions, their sentence must be enhanced with any subsequent conviction. Arizona State courts are bound to follow the sentencing ranges as set for by the law, and illustrated by the following sentencing chart available from the Arizona Supreme Court website:
