Consequences of Felonies

Felonies are serious crimes, and if you get convicted of one, your life will forever be changed. Convicted felons have to ensure a lifelong social stigma, as well as the loss of basic civil liberties. Certain occupations will be difficult or impossible to join, and professionals who get convicted of felonies risk losing their license as well as their livelihood.

Here are some of the ways a felony conviction in Texas can impact your life:

  • Voting Rights. When you get convicted of a felony, you lose the right to vote, serve on a jury, and run for or hold public office in Texas.
  • A convicted felon loses the right to own or carry firearms. Any permit the felon currently holds gets revoked, and all firearms must be transferred to someone who can legally possess them. Firearm rights can be reinstated after 5 years, but the felon may only possess a gun inside their residence.
  • Finding a new job can be complicated by a felony conviction. It boils down to this: Potential employers can ask you about your criminal background, but cannot base their hiring decision on your felony. However, it’s nearly impossible to prove that a business passed you up based solely on your conviction.
  • A felony conviction can bar you from entering the law enforcement, child care or health care fields.
  • Financial Aid. Many colleges won’t accept students with felony convictions. If your charges involved drugs, you will no longer be eligible for financial aid even if you do get accepted.
  • Depending on the nature of your crime, you could lose custody of your children and be prohibited from adopting or fostering children in the future.
  • Traveling Abroad. If you have a felony drug conviction, your passport will be revoked and you will be prohibited from obtaining a new one.

Felony Penalties in Texas

Of course, those consequences aren’t the only ones you’ll face. Felonies in Texas come with much stiffer penalties than misdemeanor crimes. The punishment you will face depends on the classification of your crime.

  • Third-Degree Felony. Up to ten years’ imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.
  • Second-Degree Felony. Up to 20 years’ imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.
  • First-Degree Felony. Up to life imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.
  • Capital Felony. Execution.
