Atascosa County Criminal Defense Attorneys for Misdemeanor Charges

While misdemeanor charges are not as potentially devastating as felony allegations, they can still have a significant impact on your short- and long-term future. A misdemeanor conviction may involve expensive fines and extensive jail time. A misdemeanor on a juvenile record can affect a person's ability to get into the college of their choice. For those in the workforce, a conviction can reduce an individual's job prospects or ability to work.

At BCP Criminal Defense Attorneys, we understand how important it is for you to keep a misdemeanor charge off your record. Our attorneys include criminal law judges and former prosecutors. That experience means you can expect the most effective legal representation available as we pursue a favorable outcome in your case. We vigorously defend clients who face charges of:

Misdemeanors in Texas

The Texas court system recognizes three types of misdemeanor charges and convictions:

  • Class C Misdemeanor: Punishable by fine of up to $500. Includes underage DWI, traffic violations, public intoxication, possession of an open alcohol container while driving, criminal trespass, assault without injury, attending a dogfight, and theft valued at less than $20.
  • Class B Misdemeanor: Punishable by up to 180 days in jail, $2,000 fine. Includes first-time DWI, drug possession including up to four ounces of marijuana, first-time prostitution or solicitation, filing a false police report, and theft valued between $20 and $500.
  • Class A Misdemeanor: Punishable by up to one year in jail, $4,000 fine. Includes multiple DWIs, unlawful firearm possession, assault with bodily injury, stalking without injury, burglary, stealing cable service, and theft valued between $500 and $1,500. 

While the severity of these crimes varies significantly, the potential for serious and lasting consequences exists for even low-level misdemeanor charges. For instance, a minor drug conviction can cause a college student or prospective student to lose their eligibility for federal financial aid, which may eliminate their only way to pay for school. Do not underestimate the possible repercussions from your misdemeanor charge. Contact the skilled attorneys at BCP Criminal Defense Attorneys immediately.

Misdemeanor Defense Strategies

Our initial mission is to investigate the facts of your case and whether law enforcement officers respected your rights during your citation or arrest. If proper police investigative procedures were not followed, we will ask the prosecutor to dismiss all charges against you. If the case does proceed, we will seek the most positive outcome possible, including probation or diversionary options that keep your record clean. If a plea deal to reduce charges is the best alternative, we will only finalize an agreement in which the terms are in your best interests.
