Fort Bend Misdemeanor Defense Lawyer
Facing a Misdemeanor Charge in the Greater Houston Area? Let Our Firm Fight for You!
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 and up to a $4,000.00 fine.
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 serious as
a felony, a conviction can still impact your life. You may find it more
difficult to receive higher education, find a job, or even obtain an occupational
license or firearm.
