Assault & Battery Lawyers in Brazoria County

Assault & Battery in Texas

In the state of Texas, assault and battery are grouped together into the general charge of "assault". Once you have been charged with assault, it is important that you seek experienced legal counsel immediately.

Assault occurs when an individual does one of the following three things:

  • Recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally causes bodily injury to another individual
  • Knowingly or intentionally threatens another individual with bodily injury
  • Knowingly or intentionally makes physical contact with another individual when they reasonably know that the individual would label the contact as offensive

Is Assault a Misdemeanor or Felony Charge?

Depending on the nature of the assault, the charge can be either labeled as a misdemeanor or a felony charge. Misdemeanors are split into three classes: Class A, Class B, and Class C, with Class A being the most serious misdemeanor charge. An assault charge can be classified as a felony if the circumstances of the assault were of a more serious nature, such as assaulting a public servant, member of the household, or a domestic partner.

Furthermore, the assault can be considered "aggravated assault" if the assault results in serious injury or if a deadly weapon was used. Aggravated assault can be charged as a first or second degree felony.
