Felony Attorneys in Austin

Defending Serious Criminal Charges

Felonies, as opposed to misdemeanors, are crimes that are considered more severe than other offenses. These crimes can include aggravated assault, possession of more than five pounds of marijuana, certain theft crimes, and family violence, to name a few. Whether you are charged with a felony or misdemeanor largely depends on the nature of the alleged offense and the resulting harm done to others.

If you or someone you care about has been arrested on felony charges, our firm can help. At Austin Defense Team, we work quickly and efficiently to build a case that protects your rights. Our Austin felony defense attorneys can help you understand your legal options and take swift action.

Types of Felonies in Texas

Under state law, felonies are classified in one of five categories:

  • Capital Felonies: The most severe felony, which is capital murder. Penalties for capital murder can include life imprisonment without the possibility of parole and death.
  • First-Degree Felonies: First-degree felonies are very serious crimes, including offenses such as homicide, aggravated robbery, and more. Penalties for first-degree felonies include possible probation, fines up to $10,000, and 5-99 years in prison.
  • Second-Degree Felonies: Manslaughter, aggravated assault, robbery, and bribery are all examples of second-degree felonies. These types of charges carry penalties ranging from fines of up to $10,000 to 2-20 years imprisonment to possible probation.
  • Third-Degree Felonies: You may face third-degree felony charges if you are arrested for a third-offense DWI, assault while intoxicated, or another similar offense. Penalties for these types of crimes include 2-10 years in prison, fines up to $10,000, and possible probation.
  • State Jail Felonies: Though they are the least serious type of felony, state jail felonies are still serious crimes. These types of offenses include certain DWI charges, drug crimes, and theft crimes and can result in penalties ranging from 6 months to 2 years in state jail, fines up to $10,000, and possible probation.

All felony charges are very serious, and it is important that you seek skilled legal assistance from an experienced criminal defense attorney. Regardless of the accusations against you, the prosecution will likely seek the maximum penalties for the alleged offense. Our firm can help you fight to protect your rights and work to ensure that you are treated fairly throughout the process.
