Degrees of Felonies & Penalties in Texas

Felony cases can be filed in Texas state courts but can also be sent to Federal courts. In some cases, misdemeanor charges can even be converted into felony charges. Although all felony charges are serious, penalties can still vary in severity depending on the crime that was committed. Felonies are categorized in degrees and the penalties increase according to degree.

The following shows how much time you serve per felony degree:

  • State jail felony - A minimum of 180 days to 2 years in state jail
  • State jail felony with a deadly weapon - A minimum of 2 years up to 10 years in state jail
  • Third-degree felony - A minimum of 2 years up to 10 years in prison
  • Second-degree felony - A minimum of 2 years up to 20 years in prison
  • First-degree felony - A minimum of 5 years up to life in prison
  • Capital felony - Life in prison without parole or death

If you already were convicted of a previous felony, your charges may be enhanced to a higher penalty range. In addition, each of these convictions can carry steep fines.
