Representation for Your Misdemeanor Charges

DWI (driving while intoxicated), simple assault, drug possession, and petty theft are all examples of offenses that may be classified as misdemeanors in Texas. Although they are below the level of felony offenses, they are still serious and may significantly impact one’s life if convicted. Penalties range from fines all the way to one year in county jail. Collateral consequences may also apply, such as increased insurance costs for a DWI conviction, or the loss of professional licenses.

Misdemeanor Classifications & Penalties

There are three classes of misdemeanors in Texas:

  • Class A misdemeanors, punishable by up to 1 year in county jail and a fine of up to $4,000.
  • Class B misdemeanors, punishable by up to 180 days in county jail and a fine of up to $2,000.
  • Class C misdemeanors, punishable by a fine of up to $500.

Many misdemeanors are “wobblers,” which means they may be charged as felonies in certain circumstances. Prior convictions, the use of a deadly weapon, or other aggravating factors can result in the escalation of a misdemeanor to a felony charge. This is one more reason it is important to involve a competent El Paso misdemeanor lawyer in the face of any misdemeanor charge.
