If you’ve been charged with a crime, you’ll probably want a lawyer immediately. A criminal conviction can follow you around for the rest of your life. Even minor criminal offenses can carry hefty fines and jail time, not to mention probation and other punishments.

Technically, misdemeanors are minor crimes that haven’t hurt anyone or destroyed any property. Drug possession, first and second offense DWIs, and petty theft are all misdemeanor crimes. A misdemeanor criminal conviction can still carry hefty punishment, especially if you’re a repeat offender.
In Texas, a misdemeanor conviction could result in fines of up to $4 thousand and one year of jail time. After you’ve served your time, though, the conviction will follow you around the rest of your life and make finding a job or renting an apartment incredibly difficult.
It’s in your best interest to hire a criminal defense lawyer, even for a minor crime. They’ll negotiate with the District Attorney and, if necessary, take your case to trial in criminal court.

Felony crimes are more serious criminal charges than misdemeanors. Most felonies involve violence, but extreme instances of theft and property damage, like arson, are also felonies. Felony convictions are serious and could be penalized by up to life imprisonment and in Texas, the death penalty.
There are several other consequences to being convicted of a felony. Felons may no longer vote, own firearms, and in certain circumstances, belong to professional organizations. Finding work or a place to live after a felony conviction is especially difficult.
If you’ve been charged with a federal or state felony, you should seek legal representation immediately. Even minor felonies carry the possibility of serious fines and jail time in the state prison. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will be able to negotiate with the District Attorney and plead your case in court, if necessary.

Driving Under the Influence and and Driving While Intoxicated offenses are two of the most common cases in Texas criminal courts. Because of this, the Texas State Legislature has increased the penalties for DUI/DWI convictions. They are neither a misdemeanor nor a felony but can be both, depending on how many times you’ve been convicted of driving under the influence.
The punishment for a first offense DUI or DWI, classified as a misdemeanor, can be a fine of up to $2,000, up to 180 days in county jail, and a suspension of your driving privileges for up to a year. A third DUI/DWI conviction is a felony and can result in fines of up to ten thousand dollars, 10 years in prison, and a drivers license suspension for up to 2 years.
