Various Types of Assault Charges in Texas

Simple Assault Charges

Texas law recognizes a charge called "simple assault," which 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, he or she 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, you should contact a criminal defense attorney BEFORE deciding whether to enter a plea or go to trial. Brandom Sims can explain to you all the various consequences associated with being convicted of a family violence charge, which will most likely affect your decision.

Aggravated Assault

If an offender allegedly causes "serious bodily injury" or threatens to do so, he or she 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, he or she will likely face 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

Protect Your Future.

  1. Remember that time is of the essence. Stalling or failing to retain legal counsel makes it more difficult to gather witness statements and favorable evidence while memories are fresh. Additionally, relevant evidence in your case may only be retained by law enforcement for a short amount of time.
