  • The offense was committed without the use of a deadly weapon
  • The crime was non-violent
  • Any stolen funds or property were minimal in value
  • Any controlled substances found were of a small quantity

Some examples of the type of activity typically classified as state jail felonies are drug possession, credit card abuse, cruelty to animals, and burglary of a building.

The jail time will be spent in a Texas state jail facility, and the convicted individual will not be eligible for parole.
