Understanding Assault Charges in Texas

I understand that charges of this nature can come about for many different reasons, including self-defense or misunderstandings. Many times, people are charged with assault for unintentionally causing harm to another or intending to cause harm but never making physical contact. Assault charges can be extremely complex, especially with varying levels of charges. For example, you could be charged with simple assault, or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and these offenses would carry very different penalties.

You may be charged with an assault offense if you have allegedly:

  • Knowingly or purposefully threatened another with physical harm
  • Intentionally caused physical contact with the intent to harm
  • Recklessly or intentionally caused physical harm to another

Enhanced Assault Charges & Penalties

If a person commits an assault that results in serious bodily harm or uses a deadly weapon during the act, a charge of simple assault can be raised to aggravated assault. There are other factors which may be considered as well, including who the victim was (elderly individual, public servant, law enforcement, etc.) and whether you have a previous criminal record. Depending on the nature of the offense and how the crime is charged, you could face penalties ranging from $500 in fines (Class C misdemeanor) to 5 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines (first-degree felony).

The consequences of an assault conviction are severe and some can be long-lasting. It is important to retain defense from a Fort Bend County assault attorney at Capetillo Law Firm. I am prepared to work with you to build an effective defense strategy.
