Dallas Evading Arrest Attorney

You can be arrested for evading arrest, if it’s alleged that you’ve intentionally eluded a law enforcement officer who is attempting to lawfully detain you.  Evading arrest is a class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in the county jail, and up to a $4000 fine.  However, if it’s alleged that you’ve previously been convicted of evading arrest, or you’ve used a vehicle or watercraft to elude the police, evading arrest is charged as a state jail felony, which is punishable by 180 days to two years in the state jail, and a fine of up to $10,000.  Evading arrest is a third degree felony, if it’s charged that you’ve previously been convicted of evading arrest, and used a vehicle to escape.  Third degree felony offenses are punishable by 2 to 10 years in state prison, and up to a $10,000 fine.  Finally, evading arrest is a second degree felony, with a penalty range of 2 to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000, if it’s alleged that someone dies as a result of the evasive conduct.
