Common Consequences Of A Felony Conviction In Texas

Felony is defined as a serious crime in Webster’s dictionary. In old Common Law, felonies were grave crimes that usually included violence. Today, there are more non-violent felony charges than there are ones with violence. The term felony today is defined by the punishment attached to a crime.

If the charge has a punishment involving a state jail or prison, the word felony is attached. There is not a formula, equation, or list of factors that help one determine whether an offense is a felony, except the penal code’s punishment for the offense. The following is a list of potential consequences of a felony conviction in the Lone Star state: 

  • Prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm 
  • Prohibited from serving on a jury 
  • Automatic grounds for divorce 
  • Prohibited from voting in local, state, and national elections (can be reinstated) 
  • Denied loans or credit 
  • Denied employment 
  • Denied state licensing 

This list is not exhaustive. Your best shot at protecting your right to due process under Texas’ tough criminal justice system is to engage an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. So park your Lexus and call Law Offices of Charles T. Ganz to make arrangements for a consultation.
