Misdemeanor Attorneys in Austin

Trusted Legal Defense & Aggressive Advocacy

Because misdemeanors typically carry less weighty penalties than felonies, many people mistakenly believe that these types of criminal charges are not that serious. However, a conviction for a misdemeanor can have serious, far-reaching consequences. In addition to criminal penalties, a misdemeanor conviction will appear on your criminal record. This could make it incredibly difficult for you to secure a job, qualify for a loan, or obtain housing.

At Austin Defense Team, we provide sound defense strategies for individuals accused of misdemeanor crimes. Our Austin misdemeanor attorneys have years of legal experience and an in-depth knowledge of Texas state laws and federal statutes. We use this experience and knowledge to help you navigate the criminal justice system. If you or your loved one is facing misdemeanor charges, we are here to help.

Types of Misdemeanors & Misdemeanor Penalties in Texas

Much like felonies, misdemeanor charges are categorized according to severity. Each classification encompasses numerous different types of criminal actions and carries different penalties. Examples of misdemeanors include petty theft, certain DWI or drug charges (including marijuana possession under 2 oz.), assault by contact/simple assault, resisting arrest, indecent exposure, and many others.

The different types of misdemeanors and their penalties include:

  • Class C Misdemeanor – Up to $500 in fines
  • Class B Misdemeanor – Up to $2,000 in fines and/or up to 180 days in county jail
  • Class A Misdemeanor – Up to $4,000 in fines and/or up to 1 year in county jail

In many cases, prosecutors will seek the maximum penalties, even for first-time offenders. For this reason, it is important to speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Every case is different and, at Austin Defense Team, we take the time to listen to your story, understand your unique situation, and devise a legal strategy that is tailored to your needs.
