Types of Misdemeanor Charges. Misdemeanor charges in Texas are grouped into Class A Misdemeanors, Class B Misdemeanors, and Class C Misdemeanors. A conviction on a Class A misdemeanor charge or Class B misdemeanor charge will stain your criminal record forever – making it difficult to find gainful employment. A Class C Misdemeanor charge can stay on your record as well if you are convicted. At the very least, you want to make sure that your attorney is looking into whether your misdemeanor charge is eligible for deferred adjudication, a charge reduction, or pretrial diversion so you can later have the charge cleared from you record through expungement or non-disclosure.
|Texas Misdemeanor Charges||Fine max.||Imprisonment max.|
|Class A misdemeanor charges||Up to $4,000||Up to 1 year in jail|
|Class B misdemeanor charges||Up to $2,000||Up to 180 days|
|Class C misdemeanor charges||Up to $500||None (fine only)|
