Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Under Texas law, the minimum sentence for a 3rd degree felony is 2 years not more than 10 years and a fine of up to $10,000. If the person has no record, then the 2 year minimum sentence can be suspended and probation imposed and the fine average is about $3000.
