Felonies in Texas

Felony convictions are the more serious category of crime compared to misdemeanor offenses. A felony conviction often carries a prison sentence in addition to other criminal penalties. If you are convicted of a felony, you will lose certain civil rights, such as your right to vote and bear arms.

A felony conviction remains on your record forever (unless expunged), which means that it can affect your life for years even after you have dealt with the initial penalties.
