Question: What are the penalties for a misdemeanor sex crime conviction in Wisconsin?

Answer: That generally will depend on what is charged, but fourth degree sexual assault is a misdemeanor. That’s a Class A misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is nine months in jail and a fine of up to $10,000. There are some lesser misdemeanors that potentially could be charged, such as disorderly conduct or some other less usual but still possible charges. And those generally there’s the maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine, or the lowest level misdemeanor is a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and a fine not to exceed $500.
