Classification of Crimes- Misdemeanors

Criminal Defense Attorney Tim Powers discusses the classification of crimes in Texas, specifically misdemeanors. A misdemeanor charge is considered a "lesser" charge than a felony charge, and there are a few different classifications of misdemeanors. A misdemeanor is still faced with various punishments that elevate based on the severity of the offense. If you are charged with a misdemeanor offense, call the Law Offices of Tim Powers for legal representation.
