Common Criminal Offenses in Plano

Under Texas law, less serious crimes are misdemeanors and can carry the potential for up to one year in jail.  Felonies are more serious and can result in long-term incarceration or the death penalty.  Misdemeanors and felonies are also divided into further categories according to their degree of severity and potential punishment.

Some common misdemeanor offenses include:

  • Driving While Intoxicated
  • Assault
  • Family Violence
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Prostitution

These offenses, although minor compared to felony crimes, still have the potential to result in loss of freedom, jobs, and reputation.

On the other hand, felony offenses can have far more severe ramifications.  Some common offenses include:

  • Driving While Intoxicated (with 2 prior convictions)
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Possession and distribution of Schedule 1 and 2 controlled substance
  • Robbery
  • Driving While Intoxicated with a child under the age of 15 (no priors necessary)

Aside from long prison sentences and high fines, individuals with a felony conviction will also forfeit some of their civil rights.  They will not be able to vote and federal law prohibits individuals with felony convictions from ever possessing or owning firearms.
