Rockwall Assault and Battery Attorney
In the state of Texas, you can be charged with the crime of assault for
a wide range of incidents. You can face charges of assault as the result
of a serious bar fight or for a minor shove. In many cases, physical contact
does not have to be made for the charge of assault and battery to be imposed.
Individuals under suspicion of assault can be arrested immediately if
an officer witnesses the alleged violence.
You can be charged with assault for any of the following actions:
- Intentionally or recklessly causing bodily injury to a victim
- Intentionally or knowingly threatening a victim with bodily injury
- Intentionally or knowingly causing physical contact in an offensive manner
Simple assault charges involve only threats or light touching, which can
be considered a Class C misdemeanor in Texas. For this type of offense,
you may be required to pay a fine of up to $400 and spend up to a year
in jail. Aggravated assault is often charged as a first-degree felony.
This type of offense is charged when assault is against an individual
within a domestic relationship with the alleged perpetrator.
