What are the Penalties for Misdemeanors in Texas?

Texas is widely recognized as one of the harshest states when it comes to criminal penalties, and this includes misdemeanors. According to Texas Penal Code §§ 12.21-12.23:

  • A Class A Misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and/or up to 1 year in jail;
  • A Class B Misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and/or up to 180 days in jail, and
  • A Class C Misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $500.

Fines and jail time have the potential to seriously disrupt your life, threaten your future, and harm your reputation. Any criminal offense on your record may make securing a good job, finding a place to live, or obtaining loans difficult.

Defenses Against Misdemeanor Charges

When facing misdemeanor charges, a robust defense strategy is crucial. Our legal team employs various defenses tailored to the specifics of each case, including:

  • Lack of Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's case by highlighting insufficient or unreliable evidence.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: Asserting Fourth Amendment rights when evidence is obtained through an unlawful search or seizure.
  • Mistaken Identity: Establishing that the accused was not the person involved in the alleged offense.
  • Self-Defense: Demonstrating that actions were taken in self-defense or defense of others.
  • Violation of Rights: Asserting violations of constitutional rights during the arrest or investigation process.

Our Houston misdemeanor lawyers are adept at crafting defense strategies that leverage the specific circumstances of each case, working tirelessly to secure the best possible outcome for our clients.
