PenaltiesElder abuse is considered a felony in Texas, although the circumstances involved determine whether it's a felony in the first, second, or third degree. Elder abusers who willingly cause serious physical harm on a senior citizen will be convicted of a felony in the first degree. A second degree felony occurs when the abuser causes serious physical harm through a reckless act. Exploitation of a senior citizen constitutes a felony in the third degree. Any bodily harm done to a senior citizen is also considered a felony in the third degree, even if it isn't serious.
