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
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.
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
