    Determining Possible Penalties for Violent Crimes

    Whether your charge is a misdemeanor or felony will depend upon the details surrounding your case. If you have a prior record, you may face more serious legal consequences than you otherwise might. For example, in certain cases, you may be charged as a habitual offender if you have been previously convicted of a felony on more than two prior occasions. Under Texas law, those charged as a habitual offender face a minimum of 25 years in prison.

    There may be defenses available to you that include defense of others, defense of property, justification, lack of mental state or self-defense. Berlof & Newton, P.C. is committed to exhausting every legal defense possible to get your charges reduced or dismissed.
