Felony Punishments

For many years, Texas had only four classifications for felonies: (1) capital felony; (2) felonies of the first degree; (3) felonies of the second degree; and (4) felonies of the third degree. In 1993, the Texas Legislature created a lower felony classification called a “State Jail Felony.” Probation is mandatory for some state jail felonies. Contact Us.


Most shoplifting cases arise from a department store (e.g. Wal-Mart or Dillard’s). Often a “loss prevention officer” monitors people on surveillance video.
