What’s the Difference Between a Felony and a Misdemeanor? 

Numerous criminal offenses can be categorized as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the gravity of the offense and specific circumstances. 

Misdemeanors have three different classifications and have less severe penalties compared to felonies, and they usually involve non-serious harm to others. 

On the other hand, felonies have five different classifications according to the seriousness of the defense. Felonies are typically for more severe or repeated crimes. Felonies carry harsher consequences, such as potential loss of firearm rights for those convicted.

Do All Cases Go to Court?

Facing criminal charges does not automatically mean your case will go to court. The prosecution has the burden of proof, meaning that they must prove your alleged guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. 

If there are any uncertainties regarding your guilt, it could potentially lead to the dismissal of your case before even going to trial. This highlights our team’s role in your situation. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys in Comal County can thoroughly evaluate your case, meticulously examine every detail, and vigorously pursue the most favorable outcome on your behalf.

Grounds for Case Dismissal

Depending on the details of your case, various grounds for dismissal may be applicable.

Common reasons for case dismissals include:

  • Interest of justice
  • Absence of credible witnesses to the alleged offense
  • Loss of evidence crucial to proving the alleged crime
  • Fulfillment of upfront conditions, like community service or classes
  • Lack of probable cause for arrest
  • Improper criminal complaints or charging documents related to the alleged offense
  • Inadequate or unsubstantial evidence of the alleged crime
  • Evidence was obtained improperly or illegally

Our team can work with you to thoroughly analyze your case and determine any potential grounds for dismissal. This proactive approach aims to assist you in steering clear of potential penalties, which could include imprisonment, substantial fines, probation, and a range of other consequences.
