What’s the difference between felonies and misdemeanors in Texas?

Being charged with a crime in Texas is a serious matter, and you may be so overwhelmed that you haven’t been able to process the specifics of whether it’s a misdemeanor or a felony. However, these distinctions matter. The difference between a misdemeanor and a felony is significant, especially as it pertains to the length of a potential sentence, where that sentence is served, civil rights impact upon release, and how you can go about clearing your record if convicted.
