The most severe types of criminal offenses are categorized as felonies, and as such, receive the harshest penalties. Murder, manslaughter, robbery, arson, stalking, check forgery, and child endangerment are all examples of felonies. In Texas, felonies are classified into five different types, including capital felony, first, second, and third-degree felony, and state jail felony. Depending on the type, a felony is punishable by 180 days to life in prison, or the death penalty, and a fine of up to $10,000.
Texas State cases
Most crimes fall under the jurisdiction of the state court. The only cases that the Texas State court is not allowed to hear are lawsuits against the United States and those involving particular federal laws, including bankruptcy, copyright, patent, and some maritime cases. The state court handles both felonies and misdemeanors and deals out punishments in accordance with the state legislature.
The federal court takes on far fewer cases than state courts. Generally, the federal court will only hear cases involving violations of the U.S. Constitution or federal law, cases in which the United States is a party, cases between citizens of different states, and cases pertaining to bankruptcy, patent, copyright, and maritime law. Cases that are handled on the federal level require the most aggressive defense, as the federal government has a vast amount of resources at their disposal to prosecute alleged criminals.
If you have been charged with a crime, ensure that you have a strong legal advocate on your side who is willing to fight on your behalf. Turn to Gonzalez Druker Law Firm to receive trustworthy legal advice about the right path forward during these extremely difficult times.
