Are there different levels of felony crimes?

Yes, not all felonies are considered the same. Depending on the exact charges a person is facing, certain felonies are classified as more severe than others. As such, these charges are accompanied by different levels of severe penalties. In Texas, the hierarchy of felonies in ascending order is as follows:

  • State jail felonies
  • Third degree felonies
  • Second degree felonies
  • First degree felonies
  • Capital felonies
