The Difference Between A Felony And Misdemeanor
Misdemeanors are less serious than felonies. The penalties for a felony conviction are much more harsh and carry a longer potential prison sentence. Additionally, it’s much harder to get felony criminal records expunged or sealed.
How Long Does A Felony Show Up On A Background Check In Texas?
Contrary to popular belief, there is no time limit for felonies on background checks. Felony convictions are a matter of public record that can show up on background checks indefinitely unless the conviction gets sealed or expunged.
What Should I Do If I Have Been Charged With A Felony?
First, exercise your right to remain silent. You won’t do yourself any favors by talking to the police or prosecutors without a lawyer present. Similarly, don’t enter a plea without speaking to a lawyer.
The sooner you get an attorney on your side, the better.
