Texas Assault Offenses
Assaultive offenses that are included in the Texas Penal Code, Title 5, Chapter 22, are numerous and complex in nature. Typical charges for Assault range from obvious attacks to more subtle actions of a threat or harassment in the workplace. The Harris Cook, LLP, Criminal Defense Attorneys understand every part of this long and complex list of offenses; they can help you with a strong defense against even the most serious charges.
Assault charges involve the actions of intentionally and knowingly causing physical harm or psychological fear to another person. The actions can be made by physical contact or offensive behavior, verbally, or with a weapon. Charges range from simple Class A Misdemeanors to serious Class C Felonies. The level of seriousness attached to criminal assault charges depends on the action of the perpetrator. Assaults involving family violence can have devastating effects on not only your family life, but your employment. Using a weapon or causing serious bodily injury will raise the charge to aggravated assault, which carries stiffer fines and penalties. Who that person threatened can result in higher level criminal charges as well.
