San Antonio Felony Defense

Working to Avoid Imprisonment

Chapter 12 of the Texas Penal Code sets out the punishment ranges for felonies. A felony is a more serious crime than a misdemeanor. Examples of common felonies include possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, or any other drug than marijuana, dealing drugs, assault with a weapon or assault of a public servant, aggravated assault, sexual assault, evading arrest with a vehicle, robbery, burglary, intoxication manslaughter, DWI with a child passenger, theft valued $1,500 or more, and welfare and insurance fraud.

Penalties for Felony Conviction

A felony can have serious consequences. Upon a felony conviction, you can lose the right to vote, own a firearm, and can lose the ability to maintain certain occupational licenses. All of these penalties would occur after a lengthy prison sentence and hefty fine. Some felonies, however, are relatively more manageable that others, depending on classification.

The classifications of felonies are as follows:

State Jail Felony

  • Maximum Fine of $10,000
  • 6 Months to 2 Years in a State Jail Facility or Probation

3rd Degree Felony

  • Maximum Fine of $10,000
  • 2 to 10 Years in the Texas Department of Corrections ("TDC") or Probation

2nd Degree Felony

  • Maximum Fine of $10,000
  • 2 to 20 Years in TDC or Probation

1st Degree Felony

  • Maximum Fine of $10,000
  • 5 to 99 Years in TDC or Probation

As you can see, a felony criminal charge is a serious business. Even if you are granted probation or deferred adjudication, the range of time for probation is two to ten years. You need an aggressive San Antonio criminal defense lawyer who will work hard to get the charges reduced to lesser misdemeanor charges or dismissed.
