Peço mil desculpas ao consulente, mas ao grau de certeza de minha resposta está errado, esqueci de marcá-lo. O certo seria um pontinho acima do meio, já que \"Penal Code Law\" também parece adequado.

Eis como o Barron\'s Law Dictionary define \"misdemeanor\":

A class of criminal offenses consisting of those offenses less serious than felonies and which are sanctioned by less severe penalties.

É exatamente o que corresponde, na lei brasileira, à contravenção penal. A Lei das Contravenções Penais trata, exatamente, desses crimes menos graves, como descrito na exposição de motivos do Decreto-Lei número 3.688, de 3/10/41. Tal Lei prevê dois tipos principais de penas: a prisão simples (que, em caso algum, poderá exceder 5 anos) e a multa (que não pode ultrapassar cinquenta cruzeiros).

A sugestão de Jane Lamb-Ruiz fez-me rever minha sugestão original, pois também gostei mais do que ela havia proposto. Na verdade, as referências apresentadas inicialmente falavam da violência doméstica como contravenção penal.
Pesquisei mais, e encontrei a expressão consagrada, de que você precisa: MISDEMEANOR CRIMINAL LAW, como aparece nos diversos exemplos e referências abaixo:
