I'm not an expert but I believe that no misdemeanor has a sentence of incarceration (jail, not prison) greater than one year. Jail time often has some time off for good behavior. In addition to jail, there is supervision after jail which can go on for some number of years, up to five I think. The other important feature of supervision is that if the person violates during those years, I believe they can then go to prison for the remainder of the years of supervision. I'm not positive on all this misdemeanor stuff but someone else here probably knows for sure.
