Assault/Aggravated Assault And Battery In Texas
In Texas, assault and battery charges can range from a class C misdemeanor to a second-degree felony, depending upon the victim’s relationship to the defendant, the defendant’s criminal history, whether suffocation or strangulation were involved and other factors.
Aggravated assault can be charged when:
- The victim lives with or is in a relationship with the defendant
- The victim was a public servant or security officer
- The defendant was in a motor vehicle at the time of the act and recklessly discharged a weapon in the direction of a vehicle or building, resulting in a serious injury
No matter how serious the charges, there are proven defense strategies our lawyers can use on your behalf. In some cases, it is appropriate to argue self-defense or that the injury was inflicted by mistake. In other cases, we may choose to challenge witness testimony or police procedure.
We will carefully examine the circumstances of your case to determine the most effective strategy to employ on your behalf. We will do everything in our power to help you avoid the harsh consequences of an assault and battery conviction.
