My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

A misdemeanor is any crime punishable by up to one year in jail. If you were sentenced to five years in a state penitentiary, you were most likely convicted of a felony. Also, the statute provides that possession of more than 1/10 of a gram, or more than one dose, of a Schedule II substance is a felony. MS Code, Section 41-29-139.

The best way to be sure is to order a copy of your criminal record from the state. You can also call the court where you were tried to get a copy of the records. It sounds very much like you were convicted of a felony (especially if the amount was more than 1/10 gram), but it's best to be sure.,0,206.html
