What are the Two Main Types of Criminal Charges in Texas?

There are two main types of criminal charges in the state of Texas: felonies and misdemeanors. Felony crimes are considered the most serious offenses and receive the harshest penalties. However, misdemeanor charges are not to be taken lightly. A conviction for a misdemeanor is still punishable by fines, jail time, license suspension, and more.

Texas Misdemeanor Classifications

In Texas, misdemeanors are categorized into three main groups including:

Class A Misdemeanors

The most severe misdemeanors are classified as Class A. This level of offense carries a fine of up to $4,000 and up to one year in county jail. Examples of Class A misdemeanors include assault with bodily injury, carrying a gun without a permit, possession of more than two ounces of marijuana, second offense DWI, resisting arrest, and violation of a protective order.

Class B Misdemeanors

This level of crime is punishable by a maximum fine of $2,000 and up to 180 days in jail. Prostitution, vandalism, criminal trespass, first offense DWI, evading arrest, minor drug possession, and failure to pay child support are examples of Class B misdemeanors.

Class C Misdemeanors

The least severe type of misdemeanor is a Class C misdemeanor. Those convicted for these types of crimes could face up to $500 in fines. Crimes such as petty theft, simple assault, using bad checks, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and gambling are examples of this level of offense.
