A felony is a crime for which a convicted person can be sentenced to one or more years in a state or federal prison. A misdemeanor is any crime that is not a felony. The key word there is "crime" because not all offenses are a crime. A crime is any act that is proscribed by law, that is, written law either makes some act illegal or makes a failure to do some act illegal.

A disorderly conduct charge is a misdemeanor crime. Disorderly conduct charges can include probation, jail, fines, or an infraction. A lesser charge is an ordinance violation.
