Abilene & San Angelo Misdemeanor Attorney
Misdemeanor Classifications in Texas
Misdemeanors are classified by the seriousness of the crime and the potential penalties. Familiarizing yourself with these classifications can help you prepare for your legal battle.
Misdemeanor classifications in Texas include:
- Class C Misdemeanors – As the most minor form of misdemeanor, these impose the least severe penalties, including fines up to $500.
- Class B Misdemeanors – More serious offenses can result in up to 180 days in jail and/or $2,000 in fines.
- Class A Misdemeanors – The most serious misdemeanor offenses can result in up to a year in jail and/or $4,000 in fines.
The most serious penalty that all misdemeanors carry is the mark on your criminal record. If you are arrested, you will face even harsher penalties if you already have a misdemeanor conviction. It is in your best interests to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after being arrested. In many cases, the court will consider how seriously you are taking the charges when making final decisions. Showing that this matters to you can be a big help. Show up to court dates on time, wear professional clothing, and have an attorney present. Even these superficial steps can make a difference in the final outcome.

Never Accept a Criminal Charge Without a Fight
Most people think of misdemeanors as minor charges that aren’t worth defending. While it’s true that they are not as serious as felonies, thinking that they won’t have long-term consequences is a mistake. The penalties for misdemeanors in Texas can include heavy fines and time in jail. Worse still, the conviction will be marked on your criminal record and show up on background checks, barring you from employment, housing, and more.
