    What is the Lowest Misdemeanor in Texas?

    In Texas, the lowest misdemeanor are Class C misdemeanors. They can include a fine of no more than $500 and no jail time. But you still have a right to a trial, which can be held in Municipal Court, Traffic Court, or a Justice of the Peace Court. Most traffic tickets and violations (except for parking tickets) in Texas are considered Class C misdemeanors. The midlevel misdemeanors are Class B which can involve up to 180 days in county jail and a fine of up to $2,000, as well as two years of community supervision (probation) or three years with an extension. First-time offenders may receive "deferred adjudication." This means that, before a trial, the defendant agrees to a plea deal by pleading "guilty" or "no contest," and after a period of probation is completed successfully, the case is dismissed and the person has no criminal conviction. The highest level of misdemeanors are Class A and can involve punishment of up to a year in county jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000, or up to two years of community supervision (probation) or three years with an extension.
