You may want to defend yourself aggressively against any criminal charges, but this especially applies to a felony charge of intoxication assault. A conviction on this charge often carries significant prison time, fines, and a loss of some of your rights.
At the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg, we understand the severity of this charge and know that your life could change significantly if you receive a conviction. Trust that a Kaufman intoxication assault lawyer from our team will develop a strategy to achieve your best possible outcome.
We Will Not Defend You Passively
Our intoxication assault attorneys in Kaufman, Texas will always be aggressive in creating your defense strategy. We do not sit back and hope for the best. Your future is on the line, and we know you are placing a lot of trust in us.
Some people charged with a serious crime like this may think that being passive and not challenging prosecutors and police officers is the best chance to avoid serious charges. This simply is not the case. Prosecutors will be aggressive in trying to convict you, and our team of Kaufman criminal defense lawyers must match this aggressiveness.
We May Need to Challenge the Police’s Evidence
Although some people believe police officers never make mistakes when collecting evidence, they do sometimes make errors. When gathering DWI evidence, such as with an intoxication assault case, the police must precisely follow all legal procedures and rules.
If the police did not have sufficient cause to ask you to go through field sobriety tests or failed to perform your blood alcohol concentration test in the proper manner, we can use this information to try to have the charge against you reduced or dismissed. Challenging police procedures is an important defense strategy.
Do Not Let Officers Convince You to Admit Guilt
During questioning after your arrest, police officers and investigators may make aggressive accusations against you. They may try to force your emotions to boil over, leading to you losing your cool and admitting to something that you shouldn’t.
Instead of sitting back and allowing officers to rattle you or use aggressive tactics when questioning you, ask to have your intoxication assault lawyer from our team represent you. Once you ask for representation, officers cannot question you without having us present. We will be in the room with you, protecting your rights.
We Will Prepare Tirelessly When Going to Trial
If we cannot negotiate dismissed or reduced charges with the prosecutor, we may decide that the best course of action is to take your case to trial. We know that going to trial can be a scary situation for you, but this may be the best opportunity we have to help you try to beat this charge.
Trust that we will spend all the time necessary to prepare for your trial. At the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg, we take pride in our level of preparation for all criminal cases. We do not back down from a prosecutor trying to stretch the truth about the facts in the case. We will defend you vehemently.
What Could I Face With a Charge of Intoxication Assault?
When you face a charge of intoxication assault, you need to understand that this is an extremely serious charge. If you are convicted, it will change your life in the short and long term.
According to Texas Penal Code § 49.07, an intoxication assault charge is typically a third-degree felony. This means you could face between two and ten years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 with a conviction, according to the Texas Attorney General. Clearly, a conviction could leave you with significant hardships.
