Helping You Effectively Navigate Texas’s Criminal Justice System

Being charged with committing any kind of crime in the state of Texas is a serious business, but the stakes are even higher when it comes to being charged with a felony. Convicted felons can lose their job or custodial rights to their children. Some people have even lost their homes, with no way to get them back because they cannot get a mortgage or take out a loan. In addition, professional licenses and student funding are also on the line.

Avoid such consequences – reach out to The Law Office of Derek S. Ritchie, PLLC so we can help build powerful defense on your behalf. Call (210) 775-2000 today!

Types of Felonies in Texas

There are many charges which can be defined as felonies. In fact, there are many crimes that would normally be classified as misdemeanors, but because of the location, or because of the physical condition or rank and role of the victim, the crime is re-classified as a felony.

Some typical felony charges in Texas include:

Types of Felonies

Not all felonies have the same penalties for a conviction. Depending on the degree, you could serve a much harsher sentence. State felonies are the lowest ranked in the state of Texas, while third, second, and first-degree felonies incur harsher convictions.

Capital felony is the highest level, and according to Tex. Penal Code § 12.31, you could either be sentenced to life without parole or the death penalty. This is why it is so crucial to enlist the help of a San Antonio felony defense lawyer who thoroughly understands how to fight felony charges.
