What can I expect if I am charged with a felony?
Murder is a crime that can result in a capital felony charge. If you are
convicted of a capital felony in Texas, you can be punished with death
or a life sentence without parole. First-degree felonies can result in
life imprisonment and a fine of up to $10,000. An example of this type
of charge is sexual assault against a child.
Second-degree felonies are punishable with between 2 and 20 years in prison
and a maximum fine of $10,000. Aggravated assault and bribery are two
offenses that can result in second-degree felony charges. Third-degree
felonies can be punished with 2 to 10 years of imprisonment and a maximum
fine of $10,000. Possession of 5 to 50 pounds of marijuana is an example
of this level of felony. State jail felonies can be punished by up to
2 years in state jail with a fine of up to $10,000.
