    What is a "1244A" in Texas?

    What is the name of your state? Texas.

    What is a "1244A" in Texas? I've looked online and can't find a reference to it in the Texas Penal Code, the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, nor in Title 28 of the US Code. What is it?

    Yeah, I know. Since I don't know what a 1244A is, I wasn't sure which category was appropriate so I posted in the few I thought might be relevant.

    Perhaps if you gave a substantive response instead of just giving me crap in each thread about posting it in more than one section, I would know which two threads to delete it from.

    Maybe this is it?

    Texas Penal Code, Chapter 12
    12.44. REDUCTION OF STATE JAIL FELONY PUNISHMENT TO
    MISDEMEANOR PUNISHMENT. (a) A court may punish a defendant who is
    convicted of a state jail felony by imposing the confinement
    permissible as punishment for a Class A misdemeanor if, after
    considering the gravity and circumstances of the felony committed
    and the history, character, and rehabilitative needs of the
    defendant, the court finds that such punishment would best serve
    the ends of justice.

    That's it! Thanks a bunch! The guy I was discussing this with left out the period and gave me virtually no context with which to figure it out. It's good to see that some folks on here are genuinely helpful.
