What are the Penalties for Felony Crimes in Texas?

There are serious consequences that can follow any felony conviction:

  • Minimum terms of imprisonment
  • Extensive fines and fees
  • Periods of supervised release
  • Loss of professional licenses
  • Loss of voting rights and ability to serve on a jury
  • Loss of firearm rights
  • Ineligibility to serve in the armed forces

Texas law classifies felonies into various categories. These include:

  • Capital felony – Death or life without parole
  • First-degree felony – 5 to 99 years
  • Second-degree felony – 2 to 20 years
  • Third-degree felony – 2 to 10 years
  • State jail felony – 6 months to 2 years

In addition to these consequences, individuals convicted of felonies often find it challenging to compete in a competitive world where people are scrutinized for their records. While having a felony conviction doesn't necessarily preclude you from earning a living, it can make finding employment, housing, and even education difficult.

Texas Three Strikes Law

To cut down on serious crime and protect the public from habitual offenders, Texas enforces a Three Strikes law that governs the sentences for repeat felony convictions. A strike is defined as a serious or violent felony. The theory behind the law is, "three strikes and you're out," defendants convicted of a third felony will face considerably longer prison terms, ranging from 15 or 25 to life.

Defenses Against Felony Charges

Mounting a robust defense is crucial when facing felony charges. Our experienced Houston felony lawyers employ a variety of legal strategies to challenge allegations, including:

  • Insufficient Evidence: We scrutinize the evidence presented by the prosecution, challenging its validity and reliability. If the evidence is insufficient, we work to have charges dismissed or reduced.
  • Fourth Amendment Violations: Unlawful search and seizure can lead to evidence being deemed inadmissible. We carefully examine the circumstances of arrests to identify and challenge any Fourth Amendment violations.
  • Witness Credibility: We assess the credibility of witnesses and work to uncover any inconsistencies or biases that may undermine their testimony.
  • Constitutional Violations: If law enforcement violates the defendant's constitutional rights during the investigation or arrest, we aggressively pursue the suppression of evidence obtained unlawfully.
