What is the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?

Put simply, a felony is more serious than a misdemeanor. Felonies can result in sentences of imprisonment for over a year, and include serious crimes such as murder, rape, and kidnapping. Misdemeanors generally have sentences of fines and a year or less in jail and include public intoxication, vandalism, or petty theft. While a felony conviction may result in loss of some of a person’s civil rights, a misdemeanor will likely only affect a person’s rights to professional offices, public offices, and the like.

If you have been charged with a crime, you deserve to have an experienced legal professional on your side. Contact the Houston criminal defense attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer at 713-523-0404 to discuss the facts of your case.
