Felony Offenses in the Texas Penal Code, Chapter 46

Texas law contains more than a thousand crimes, scattered throughout dozens of codes. This webpage focuses on felony-level offenses in the Texas Penal Code. Felonies are crimes that can be punished by a year or more in prison. There are felonies in almost every section of Texas law, not just the Penal Code. Crimes found in the Penal Code are the "traditional" ones--assault, theft, etc... But nearly every other section of Texas law defines criminal acts. For more information about non-penal code felony offenses, see our webpage on Texas Statutes & Crimes.
