Misdemeanors in Texas are organized into three different classes, which each come with distinct penalties.

The misdemeanor classifications are:

  • Class C misdemeanor: Penalties include a $500 maximum fine. Most Class C cases are dealt with in municipal courts or justice of the peace courts.
  • Class B misdemeanor: Convicted offenders may face up to 180 days in the county jail and up to $2,000 in fines.
  • Class A misdemeanor: This is the most serious misdemeanor charge. Offenders may spend up to 1 year in jail and be forced to pay up to $4,000.

As you can see, the severity of the punishment matches the severity of the crime.

In addition to the penalties above, misdemeanors may result in:

  • Community service
  • Required class attendance (at the defendant’s expense)
  • Probation
  • License suspension

Your Fort Worth misdemeanor attorney will help you craft a defense to avoid as many of these penalties as possible.


Misdemeanor crimes range in severity and carry varied consequences.

The list of misdemeanor crimes is long, but some common offenses include:

  • Carrying a weapon without a permit
  • Driving while intoxicated (first offense)
  • Public intoxication
  • Assault
  • Possession of up to 4 ounces of marijuana
