In determining the classification of an offense (traffic, Misdemeanor, or felony), refer to the court documents to determine how the state adjudicated the offense. State classification takes precedence over charts A, B, C, and D


    a. Breaking into three vehicles at a shopping center is considered to be three separate violations and is not considered a single transgression.

    b. Possession of Marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia is considered a single transgression.

    c. A minor pulled over for speeding after attempting to elude police is found to have alcohol in his possession of alcohol and assaults a police officer during the stop, would have four separate charges. This is not considered a single transgression.
