Offenses in Pennsylvania are divided into felonies and misdemeanors, with felonies being the most serious classification and misdemeanors being less serious.
Each of these classifications is further divided into different degrees. A first degree offense is more serious than a second degree offense.
In Pennsylvania, both felonies and misdemeanors are broken into these degrees: first, second and third.
Some Pennsylvania felonies and misdemeanors are non-categorized and do not have assigned degrees.
