Your Rights If Charged with a Petty Misdemeanor

Like every defendant in any case, if you are charged with a petty misdemeanor you have a right to state your case before a judge and to be represented by an attorney. In fact, in Minnesota petty misdemeanor defendants have seven specific rights:

  • The right to have your case continued so you can speak with a lawyer
  • The right to have a lawyer represent you in court
  • The right to be presumed innocent
  • The right to be tried by a judge
  • The right to remain silent, including making no statement to the police or at a trial
  • The right to cross-examine witnesses such as the police officer who issued the citation
  • The right to subpoena witnesses who will testify on your behalf
