In Texas there are three classifications of misdemeanors: Class A, Class B, and Class C. The list of offenses that are classified as misdemeanors is extensive. Some of the more common misdemeanors that are prosecuted in County Courts at Law are DWI (Class B) and DWI 2nd (Class A), Unauthorized Carrying of a Weapon (UCW), Possession of Marijuana, Assault, and Theft.
The class of misdemeanor for each of the above listed offenses will depend on various factors, such as whether the Defendant has been convicted of the same offense in the past. A conviction from many Class A and Class B misdemeanor’s can cause your driver’s license to be suspended, Immigration issues, and revocation of parole.
Therefore, it is necessary that these issues are a part of the discussion when speaking to your attorney.Class C misdemeanors are usually prosecuted in JP Court or Municipal Court. The more common Class C misdemeanors include most of your traffic violations such as speeding tickets, and also include other offenses such as assault.
