Various Types of Assault Charges in Texas

Simple Assault Charges
In the state of Texas, the law recognizes what is known as "simple assault." A simple assault charge is a Class C misdemeanor that can carry a maximum punishment of a $500 fine. You cannot be given a jail or prison sentence for this type of offense. It is important to note that actual violence need not occur to result in a simple assault charge. Merely threatening someone could bring about a criminal arrest. Simple assault charges may include:

  • Assault by threat
  • Touching another individual in a way that was offensive

Class A Misdemeanor
If an offender allegedly causes bodily injury (i.e. pain) to another person they will be charged with a Class A Misdemeanor. Unlike simple assault, some type of bodily injury must occur in order to be charged with this type of assault. Potential penalties may include:

  • Up to 1 year in county jail
  • Up to $4,000 in legal fines

Domestic Violence or Assault
If "family violence" is involved in the assault it is imperative to contact a criminal defense attorney that can sit down with you and explain all the various collateral consequences associated with an affirmative finding of family violence PRIOR to making a decision to enter a plea or proceed to trial. There are numerous collateral consequences that occur when any type of affirmative finding of family violence occurs.


Aggravated Assault
If an offender allegedly causes "serious bodily injury" or threatens they will be charged with Aggravated Assault which is a second degree felony. Consequences may include:

  • 2 to 20 year range of punishment
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Felony Conviction

Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon
If an offender allegedly strikes another with a deadly weapon or merely exhibits a deadly weapon in a threatening manner they very well may be facing a second degree felony charge. You may face the following criminal repercussions:

  • Sentence range of 2-20 years
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Felony Conviction
