A Fierce Defender In and Out of the Courtroom

Depending on the facts, criminal cases can be resolved in a couple of different ways. Most commonly, they are settled out of court through a plea bargain. A plea bargain is a deal the prosecutor makes with defense counsel and their client. Typically, the client agrees to plead guilty in exchange for lesser charges or a reduced sentence.

Cases not resolved through a plea deal are taken to trial. A judge or jury hears the evidence and decides the verdict.

Whatever course your case may take, you need a Fort Worth criminal defense lawyer on your side. Negotiating with the prosecutor or presenting arguments in court requires familiarity with legal practices and procedures – a familiarity developed through years of training and experience.

  • Felonies: This is the most serious level of crime in Texas and includes murder, kidnapping, sexual assault, and arson, among others. The state separates felonies into five degrees, with capital felonies the most severe and state jail felonies the least.
  • Misdemeanors: Although not considered as severe as felonies, misdemeanors are still serious. Class A misdemeanors, the highest of the three classifications for this level of offense, are punishable by up to 1 year in jail and/or up to $4,000 in fines.
  • Possession of marijuana: Under Texas Penal Code § 481.121, the level of charge for possessing marijuana varies based on the amount of the substance.
