Felonies Misdemeanors

Former Judge Defends You from Misdemeanor and Felony Charges

Providing the representation San Antonio needs for those accused of crimes

If you’ve been charged with a crime, whether you think it’s serious or not, you may be looking at some significant consequences. Whether it’s fines and community service for a misdemeanor or the threat of jail time, probation or a prison sentence for a felony, a criminal conviction can change your life. You may suffer permanent damage to your reputation, your lifestyle and your career. So it makes a lot of sense to call a skilled Texas criminal defense lawyer to defend you against felony and misdemeanor charges. I’ve been practicing law for more than 30 years and at the Law Office of Bill Baskette. I represent clients in San Antonio and throughout Texas in felony and misdemeanor cases. Whether you’re dealing with the effects of a DWI or coping with a drug crimes charge, I promise personal service, direct contact and professional advice.

A former judge and former prosecutor defending the innocent and guilty

In more than 30 years of practice, I have served as a judge and as a prosecutor. Now, in my private practice, I bring that wealth of knowledge and experience to each client I work with. I know how prosecutors work and how judges think, so I can anticipate how a judge will rule on the issues. When I represent you, this knowledge and insight lets me see how the case will play out, and I strategize accordingly.

Working with clients accused of a variety of crimes

One of my goals as an attorney is to always give you the straight story and not to steer you in the wrong direction. I fight for your rights in a variety of cases:
  • DWI
  • Drug charges
  • Domestic violence
  • Aggravated assault
  • Murder and attempted murder
  • Internet and computer crimes
  • Sex offenses
  • Probation violations
  • Parole violations
  • Manslaughter
  • Traffic tickets
  • Fraud and forgery
  • White collar crimes
  • Embezzlement
  • Manslaughter

What’s the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?

felony is a serious criminal offense where you may be fined up to $10,000 and be sentenced to a prison for a period of between six months and life. You also may lose your right to vote, have a gun or practice some occupations. Felonies include murder, aggravated assault and burglary. A misdemeanor is a less serious criminal offense. In these you may be fined no more than $4,000 and be sentenced to jail for up to one year. You do not lose any civil rights (like in a felony). Misdemeanors include simple assault, theft and DWI (first or second time). There are three classes of misdemeanor—A, B, and C—and five categories of felony—capital, first-degree, second-degree, third-degree and state jail. If you’ve already been in court but you feel that an error was made, I also am a skilled Texas appellate attorney and I can argue appeals on your behalf.
