Denton Felony Defense Lawyer

What is a felony? Our criminal defense lawyer explains.

Felonies are a categorization of criminal offenses that describe more serious crimes. Most commonly, felony offenses consist of:

  • Theft crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Violent crimes

If you have been arrested for or are under suspicion of a weapons charge, murder, or manslaughter, it will likely be charged as a felony. Not all of these offenses will automatically be sentenced as such, but many crimes in these categories are considered felonies. If you are facing a felony charge, you should obtain experienced and competent legal guidance. At Derek A. Adame, Attorney at Law, that is what you will find from our Denton criminal defense attorney.

Levels of Felonies in Texas

In Texas, there are seven different levels of offenses. In cases of felonies, you can be charged with any of the following:

  • State jail felony
  • Third-degree felony
  • Second-degree felony
  • First-degree felony
  • Capital felony

Penalties for felonies depend on the specific offense and which level is charged. You can face a minimum sentence of 180 days in jail and a maximum sentence of execution. In Texas, felony offenses are taken very seriously. Do not hesitate to get the legal assistance you need to pursue a reduction or dismissal of charges.
