A “misdemeanor” is a classification of a crime, which is less serious than a “felony” and for which a person who is convicted cannot be sent to prison.
In Texas, there are three classes of misdemeanors. A Class A misdemeanor has a punishment range of up to one year in county jail and a fine of up to $4,000.00. A Class B misdemeanor has a punishment range of up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.00. A Class C misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $500.00. Probation is a possibility for all misdemeanor cases.

Just because your case is a misdemeanor, do not believe that it is not important to defend yourself or attempt to get the best possible outcome for you. Under certain circumstances, some charges that may be enhanced up to a felony charge. Taking a misdemeanor conviction on a bad case now may result in a felony charge in the future if you get arrested on a similar case in the future. Furthermore, it may affect your ability to obtain a particular job, rent an apartment, and cause you to be deported from this country (if you are not a citizen of the United States). Additionally, you will almost always receive a better result with an attorney than simply accepting the prosecutor’s plea offer to you.
