According to the Texas Penal Code, an offense is either a Felony or a Misdemeanor. Felonies are crimes for which a person may be sentenced to imprisonment in the state institutional division or to death. Misdemeanors are crimes of lesser degree, for which a person may be fined and/or sentenced to imprisonment in jail. Misdemeanors are divided into classes according to the degree to seriousness and the type of punishment.


Misdemeanor Crimes

Examples of Misdemeanor Crimes include: Petty Theft, Prostitution, Public Intoxication, Simple Assault, Disorderly Conduct, Trespass, Vandalism, Drug Possession, and Reckless Driving.

If you are convicted of misdemeanor, you may be punished with probation, community service, short jail term, or part-time imprisonment (on weekends).


Classification of Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors are classified according to the relative seriousness of the offense into three categories:

  • Class A misdemeanors
  • Class B misdemeanors
  • Class C misdemeanors

An offense designated as a misdemeanor in this code without specification as to punishment or category is a Class C Misdemeanor. Conviction of a Class C Misdemeanor does not impose any legal disability or disadvantage.


Class A Misdemeanor

An individual adjudged guilty of a Class A Misdemeanor can be punished by:

  • A fine not to exceed $4,000
  • Confinement in jail for a term not to exceed one year
  • Both such fine and confinement


Class B Misdemeanor

An individual adjudged guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor can be punished by:

  • A fine not to exceed $2,000
  • Confinement in jail for a term not to exceed 180 Days
  • Both such fine and confinement


Class C Misdemeanor

An individual adjudged guilty of a Class C Misdemeanor can be punished by a fine not to exceed $500.

When should you hire a criminal defense lawyer?

Most of the time, when someone is arrested, a judge will set some sort of bail for the person. Bail is a process through which an arrested person is allowed to pay certain sum of money in exchange for his or her release from jail.



Many people make the mistake by rushing to bail a family member or a friend out of jail, only then to realize that they do not have enough money to hire a Criminal Defense lawyer who may be able to help them fight the charges.



We can help you with the bail process. First, if the bail amount is too high, depending upon the charge and circumstances, we can make a motion to the court to reduce it. Next, if the facts and circumstances permit, we can move the court to have you released on your own recognizance (own recognizance means you pay no money for bail). Finally, if all avenues fail, we can get you or your loved one out of jail through our attorney bond (for Dallas County only). If circumstances permit, we will get you out of jail.



These are some simple facts that are considered by the judge when we file a motion to have your bond reduced or have you released on your own recognizance (O.R. Bond):



We know that when facing a criminal charge, your freedom is at stake. Do not leave your constitutional rights and freedom to chance. You need to hire a criminal defense lawyer that will stand behind you through this unpleasant process. We are here to fight for you. Give us a call and let us help you. We are the LAWYERS ON YOUR SIDE™.
