How charges are classified

A Texas resident who has allegedly committed a crime could face a misdemeanor or felony charge. In most cases, the level of a charge is determined by how much time behind bars a person could face if convicted. However, a prosecutor has flexibility when it comes to charging an individual. If a person is charged with a misdemeanor, he or she can generally expect to spend up to a year in jail if convicted.
