Getting to know our Houston Criminal Defense Attorneys

A criminal offense is a type of crime we distinguish from a civil “wrong.” A criminal offense is viewed by society as not only an offense against a victim but against society as a whole. A civil wrong involves a misbehavior toward a specific victim but is not considered an affront to the public or to morality in general. As an example, robbery is considered a criminal offense because a victim has been (forcefully) deprived of his or her property, but also because society as a whole is not tolerant of a violent personal theft.

When considering a white-collar crime, such as embezzlement, the owner of the business is harmed when an employee embezzles money, but in many cases, so is the public. In contrast, a civil wrong generally does not breach society’s moral sensibilities in the same way a criminal offense does. Because of this, we leave it to “society” (as in a public prosecutor such as a district attorney) to charge and prosecute criminal offenders, bringing justice to the victim, and, by extension, society.

Rather than the monetary compensation awarded a “victim” in a civil case, criminal defendants are incarcerated and/or fined, as a punishment. You may have been charged with a Texas felony—a more serious criminal offense—or a Texas misdemeanor, which is less serious, but can still have serious consequences. Criminal offenses include such crimes as murder, manslaughter, assault, sexual crimes, drug offenses, theft and burglary, DWI and DUI, juvenile crimes, disorderly conduct, domestic violence and shoplifting (as well as many more criminal offenses)

Whether the crime you are charged with is a felony or misdemeanor will depend on many different things—sometimes a crime which is normally a misdemeanor can be charged as a felony when there are aggravating circumstances or the offense is a second, third or subsequent charge. Houston Criminal Defense Attorneys also deal with probation violations, bench warrants and bond hearings. In fact, no matter the issue related to your criminal charges, an experienced Houston Criminal Lawyer from Sullo & Sullo can advocate on your behalf, defending your charges aggressively.

Both felony and misdemeanor offenses can cause not only serious criminal penalties, but additional consequences which can last for many, many years.
