Misdemeanor Defense Lawyers in Denton

Defending Against Misdemeanor Charges in Texas

Criminal charges are either classified as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the perceived seriousness of the crime. Although misdemeanors are considered to be less serious than felonies, they can still carry heavy consequences. If you or a loved one were charged with any type of misdemeanor, your first step should be to hire a Denton misdemeanor defense lawyer. At The Law Office of Gregory C. Goline, we represent clients in a wide range of criminal cases, including misdemeanor offenses.

How Texas Handles Misdemeanor Charges

In the state of Texas, misdemeanors can be punished by up to one year in county or local jail, as well as a number of other penalties. These offenses are categorized by Class A, B, or C under Tex. Penal Code Ann. § 12.03.

Class C is the least severe category and may carry up to $500 in fines with no jail time. A Class B offense may be penalized with fines up to $2,000, 180 days in jail, or both. Class A misdemeanors can be penalized with up to 1 year in jail, $4,000 in fines, or both.

A few examples of Class A misdemeanor offenses are:

  • Assault with bodily injury
  • Resisting arrest
  • Burglary of a vehicle
  • Unlawful carrying of a weapon
  • Second DWI offense
  • Animal cruelty
