While misdemeanors are the lesser of the categories of crimes (next to felonies), this does not mean that you should take them lightly.

We are here to protect your rights throughout any criminal proceedings. Call us now at (214) 273-6603.

Understanding Misdemeanor Charges in Texas

Misdemeanor offenses are broken into three classes depending on the severity of the offense: Class A, Class B, and Class C. Each carries different penalties, sentences, and lasting consequences. While a Class C misdemeanor may lead to a fine of up to $500, you could face a year in county jail for a Class A misdemeanor. The penalties you face may also depend on your previous criminal record and whether you were charged with a single crime or multiple offenses.

A few examples of crimes which are typically charged with misdemeanors include:

  • Petty theft
  • Simple assault
  • Drug possession
  • DWI
  • Indecent exposure
  • Trespassing
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Assault
