Misdemeanors

Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer in Fort Bend

A misdemeanor is a crime that holds more weight than a citation, but less than a felony. Although they can vary in severity, punishments are generally less harsh than that of a felony. In fact, the most severe punish for a misdemeanor offense is up to 1 year in county jail.

A large range of crimes are classified as misdemeanors and separated by ‘classes’ ranging from Class A (the most serious) to Class C (the least serious). Even though a misdemeanor is not as negative as a felony, a conviction will still impact your life. You may find it more difficult to receive higher education, find a job, or even obtain an occupational license.

Protect Your Future.

  1. Remember that time is of the essence. Stalling or failing to retain legal counsel makes it more difficult to gather witness statements and favorable evidence while memories are fresh. Additionally, relevant evidence in your case may only be retained by law enforcement for a short amount of time.
