What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?

A misdemeanor is a crime that is deemed less serious in the eyes of the law. When dealing with damaged property or stolen money, the judgment of whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony often depends on the value of the damage (if it is over a certain amount it will be considered a felony). For more serious crimes like rape, armed robbery, or murder, these are always considered felony cases.
