Houston Felony Lawyer
Facing Felony Charges in Texas?
Texas classifies its felonies into four categories. These are weighed according to their seriousness and the number of offenses committed. Capital felonies top the list of categories with the most severe of punishments. A person under this category is subject to the death penalty or life in prison without parole. In the case of capital felonies, the jury will be informed to whether or not the prosecution seeks the death penalty, if not then the jury will be informed that the sentencing of life in prison is mandatory.
First Degree Felonies
First-degree felonies are punishable by life in prison or a sentence of no more than ninety-nine years and no less than five years in prison. In addition to a jail sentence, an individual may also be subject to a fine of no more than ten thousand dollars.
Second Degree Felonies
Those who fall under second-degree felonies are subject to punishment by imprisonment through the institutional division of a term of no more than twenty years and no less than two years. A fine may also be given along with a jail sentence. In the case of second-degree felonies, a fine can be as much as ten thousand dollars but no more.
Third Degree Felonies
Third-degree felonies are punishable by up to ten years in a state prison but no less than two years. This sentence may also be served through the institutional division. Like other felonies, third-degree felonies can also have a fine implemented. This fine can be as much as ten thousand dollars but no more.
Texas law states that a person can be found guilty of a third-degree felony if a deadly weapon was used or if the person was previously found guilty of a felony as listed in the Code of Criminal Procedure. If this is found then a person is housed in a state jail rather than a state prison.
