Levels of Felonies in Texas

In the State of Texas, not all felonies are the same. There are different levels of felonies you can be charged with depending on the exact offense. The consequences of being convicted of a felony will depend on the severity or felony level with which you were charged.

If you are convicted of a felony, you could face consequences that range anywhere from six months in jail to execution. Because the law takes these laws seriously, having legal assistance on your side to protect your rights and future is vital.

Felony levels and their maximum penalties are as follows:

  • State Jail Felony: 180 days to 2 years in jail; $10,000 fine
  • Third-degree Felony: 2-10 years in prison; $10,000 fine
  • Second-degree Felony: 2-20 years in prison; $10,000 fine
  • First Degree Felony: 5-99 years or life in prison; $10,000 fine
  • Capital Felony: Maximum penalty of execution

Examples of common felonies in Texas include:

  • Certain drug crimes (felony levels range dramatically based on type of drug, quantity, and other factors)
  • Theft (felony level depends on monetary value of items stolen)
  • Carjacking (state jail felony)
  • Arson (first or second degree felony)
  • Rape (aggravated assault, for example, is a second degree felony)
  • Murder (capital felony)
  • Manslaughter (second degree felony)
  • Kidnapping (third degree felony)
