FIGHTING FELONY CHARGES IN THE STATE OF TEXAS
When it comes to violent crimes, more often than not they are considered felonies. According to the Texas three strikes law, a three-time offender will be imprisoned for life. Also, felonies carry harsher penalties than other crimes. The least serious of these are third-degree felonies, which could still result in a fine of up to $15,000 and 3-5 years in prison. There are also second- and first-degree offenses and capital offenses, they worst of which result in fines up to $200,000 and up to 30 years-or life-in prison.
