In a recent case in Collin County, one of our clients was charged with a third degree felony for choking his girlfriend. According to the Texas Penal Code § 12.34 (2009), a third degree felony can result in up to ten years behind bars. Not only could it result in jail time, but a fine of up to $10,000 as well. The client approached our firm for help with this heavy charge against him. After taking on the case, we were able to get the charge reduced to a misdemeanor time served.
