Most people are aware that being arrested and convicted of a crime in the state of Texas is a very serious matter. Even if it’s a relatively minor offense that isn’t likely to lead to jail time, a conviction will still be placed onto an offender’s criminal record. These records can follow people for years and make it more difficult for them to find a job, apply for a loan or find affordable housing.

Whether these convictions occur after a single incident or over a span of years, their combined effect can be very difficult to deal with. This post will explain how multiple crimes are handled in the state of Texas.
