bail bonds by offenceTexas Criminal Laws

Texas criminal laws identify a wide range of offenses illegal including, but not limited to, theft, murder, and sexual assault. These charges are punishable by fines, imprisonment, and other sanctions. The laws in Texas are similar to the laws in many other states, but it’s also unique in a number of ways; for example, Texas is known for its particularly harsh penalties for drug offenses, and its frequent use of the death penalty. Depending on your charge, PCS Bail Bonds may be able to offer you a bail bond to get out of jail while you await your trial. Keep on reading to find out about bail bonds that we offer based on the offense.

Types of Offenses We Can Bail

Misdemeanor

The first type of bail bond that PCS Bail Bonds offers is for misdemeanor offenses. Misdemeanor crimes are offenses that are considered less serious than a felony. They’re divided into three categories: class A, B, and C. The maximum fine for a class A offense is $4,000, and jail time is only possible with class A and class B misdemeanors. Most misdemeanor cases don’t go to trial; instead, a probationary period is given to the defendant, and if they’re found guilty, they’ll do community service and pay a fine.

DWI

The severity of a driving while intoxicated charge is dependent on the specifics of each case, and whether this is your first, second, or third offense. While the most common penalty is probation, punishments can vary from a $2,000 fine and a suspended licence for a first offense, to a $10,000 fine and two to 10 years behind bars for a third offense. Whether you’ve been arrested for your first offense or third, PSC Bail Bonds can offer you a DWI bail bond to release you from jail.

Felony

A felony is considered a serious crime in Texas, and can carry fines of up to $10,000 plus life in prison. These offenses are grouped into different categories depending on the type of crime you’ve committed. There are capital felonies, first-degree felonies, second-degree felonies, third-degree felonies, and state jail felonies. We’re able to offer felony bail bonds to get you out of jail, no matter the type of felony you’d committed.

Traffic Tickets

You may not think of a traffic ticket offense as warranting a bail bond, but there are many instances in which multiple violations can lead to an arrest. Each traffic ticket carries two or three demerit points, and once you’ve accumulated up to six, you’ll have to start paying a yearly surcharge. One of the most disputed charges in Texas, traffic tickets can be more of a headache than anything else—the key is to not let unpaid violations pile up.
