What are the Different Levels of Misdemeanors in Texas?
In Texas, there are three levels of misdemeanors:
- Class C misdemeanors are the lowest level and can include a fine of no more than $500 and no jail time. However, a trial can still be requested and held in Municipal Court, Traffic Court, or a Justice of the Peace Court. Most traffic tickets and violations (except parking tickets) in Texas are considered Class C misdemeanors.
- Class B misdemeanors are midlevel and can involve up to 180 days in county jail, a fine of up to $2,000, and two years of community supervision (probation) or three years with an extension. First-time offenders may receive "deferred adjudication," which means that before a trial, the defendant agrees to a plea deal by pleading "guilty" or "no contest." After completing a probation period, the case is dismissed, and the person has no criminal conviction.
- Class A misdemeanors are the highest level and can involve punishment of up to a year in county jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000, up to two years of community supervision (probation), or three years with an extension.
It's essential to know the different levels of misdemeanors and their consequences to understand the severity of a crime and how it's punished in Texas.
