What Are the Aggravated Assault Laws & Penalties in Texas?
According to state law, aggravated assault is defined as intentionally or recklessly inflicting serious bodily harm to someone or using/showing a deadly weapon while committing an assault-related offense. Seriously bodily harm means injury that can potentially lead to death, impairment or loss of a bodily function or organ, or permanent disfigurement.
What is an Aggravated Assault?
Aggravated assault is a second-degree felony, punishable by a maximum 20-year prison sentence and a fine no more than $10,000. But if the violent crime involves a deadly weapon, injury to a public servant, a family member, injury to a security officer who is on duty, or retaliation against a crime witness, it may be upgraded to a first-degree felony, which carries a maximum 99-year prison term and a fine not exceeding $10,000.
