How an Assault Attorney Can Help Clear Your Name

In Texas, assault is defined as:

  • Threatening to harm another individual.
  • Intentionally or recklessly harming another individual.
  • Touching another individual in a way that might provoke them.

The type of penalty you receive depends on the action, and it’s advisable to speak to an assault lawyer to determine what you might receive. If you threaten another individual, you will like receive a Class C misdemeanor (which involves a maximum fine of $500, but no jail time). If the individual is an athlete or sports official, it will likely be considered a Class B misdemeanor ($2000 in fines and up to 180 days in jail). And, if you actually harm another individual (or if the individual involved is elderly), you can receive a Class A misdemeanor, which results in maximum fines of $4000 and up to one year in prison.

While finding an assault attorney is important for simple assault charges, it becomes even more so if you’re charged with aggravated assault. Aggravated assault is when you either cause serious bodily injury to another person, or you attack them using a deadly weapon. Typically, this is a second-degree felony, which means you could spend up to 20 years in prison and pay fines up to $10,000. However, if you cause actual injury with a deadly weapon, this is elevated to a first-degree felony, and you may spend up to 99 years in prison.

Finding an assault lawyer is often crucial in these cases. A good assault attorney is able to take a look at the particulars of your case and determine the best path forward. Additionally, they are able to provide support, legal advice, and powerful representation to help protect you.
