Property Crime in Atascocita
When it comes to property crime, Texas has a wide array of sentencing guidelines. For instance, intent plays a huge role when charging for a crime—even if said crime wasn’t actually committed. If someone broke into a home with the intent to commit a felony but didn’t actually get to commit the felony, they’ll still get the charge for it. The scale of theft is listed as follows:
- Class B Misdemeanor Theft: Theft is a class B misdemeanor if the value is $50 or more but less than $500, or if the property stolen is a driver’s license or other form of identification. The punishment for a class B misdemeanor is up to 180 days in jail with a bail bond of $2,000.
- Class A Misdemeanor Theft: Theft is a class A misdemeanor if the value is $500 or more but less than $1,500. The punishment for a class A misdemeanor is jail time for up to 1 year, with a bail bond of $4,000.
Burglary in Atascocita
Class A Misdemeanor Burglary: breaking into a coin-operated or vending machine (in some cases, a vehicle).
- Bail Bond: the judge may set a bond up to $4,000. In order to bail out of jail, an inmate must pay at least $400.
Being one of Atascocita’s most common crimes, burglary is completely different from theft and robbery. Unlike them, burglary involves actually breaking into—or attempting to break into—a building, residence, business, vehicle, or machine. The actual charge depends on the crime itself, the criminal history of the defendant, and who was involved. For the most part, burglary charges go as follows:
State Jail Felony Burglary: breaking into a building other than a habitation. For state jail felonies, inmates can be found at Kegans International Sanctions Facility—or Kegans ISF (713) 224-6584
- Bail Bond: $10,000. To bail out of jail, an inmate has to pay $1,000.
Second Degree Felony Burglary: when someone breaks into or illegally enters a habitation without the intent to commit a felony.
- Bail Bond: $10,000. To bail out of jail, an inmate has to pay $1,000.
First Degree Felony Burglary: breaking into a habitation with the intent to commit a felony. This applies to everyone involved if any single member of the party had the intention.
- Bail Bond: $10,000. To bail out of jail, an inmate has to pay $1,000. Depending on the nature of the crime—or if the defendant is considered a risk—the judge can choose not to set a bond.
Violent Crime in Atascocita
When dealing with violent crime—particularly, assault—Texas has many classifications. Depending on the circumstances, the people involved, and the intention of the crime, an assault charge can range from a class C misdemeanor to a first-degree felony. Atascocita’s general crime guidelines are as follows:
Class C Misdemeanor Assault: making a threat to harm someone, or physically making contact with someone in an aggressive or offensive manner (without injuries).
- Bail Bond: $500. Since bail is around 10% of a bond, an inmate without a criminal history must pay $50 to get bail.
Class B Misdemeanor Assault: (usually in sports or competitive competitions) when a non-participant assaults a participant in a competitive setting.
- Bail Bond: this charge results in a $2,000 bail bond. Because bail is 10% of a bond, an inmate must pay $200 to make bail.
Class A Misdemeanor Assault: either injuring another person or an elderly or disabled person was involved (regardless if they were actually injured).
- Bail Bond: $10,000 bail bond, and between 2 to 10 years in prison. With 10% of the bond, an inmate must pay $1,000 to bail out of jail.
Third Degree Felony Assault: assaulting a public servant, security officer, emergency services employee, contractor, or government official.
- Bail Bond: this lands you anywhere between 2 to 10 years in jail, and a $10,000 bail bond. With 10%, an inmate can bail out of jail with $1,000.
Second Degree Felony Assault: assaulting an on-duty peace officer or judge. If the defendant has a criminal history of assault, however, it’ll automatically be labeled a second degree felony—regardless of the circumstances.
- Bail Bond: $10,000. To meet bail requirements, an inmate must pay $1,000.

We’re all familiar with the term “bail,” and have either seen or read about various crimes where the culprit is released from jail via bail, or is arrested with a posted bond amount (which, depending on the nature of the crime, can be quite hefty). But what exactly is bail, and why are most defendants better off utilizing a bond? There are a plethora of reasons why, and many of them have to do with ensuring they keep their jobs, kids, homes, and loved ones.
Unfortunately, many individuals who are arrested and detained cannot afford bail–therefore they remain in jail, often resulting in lost jobs, homes, and even custodies of children and pets. The consequences of not affording bail can be life-changing and virtually impossible to recover from, depending on the situation and the crime. Thankfully, bail bonds exist–and companies like ABC Bail Bonds, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and approves all bonds–can guarantee a prompt release from jail, at any time of day or night, so those life-changing consequences do not have to happen to anyone.
We understand that bonds are usually large sums of money, which is not always readily available out of the defendant’s pocket; that is why we are ready to help pay what is needed in order for them to be released, so they can return to their lives–however, in order to utilize a bond, the defendant must show up to court and do what is legally expected of them. Once that has been complete, they are off the hook and can completely return to their normal lives.
