Understanding How Texas Law Handles Assault
Under Texas law, assault covers a wide range of actions. A person has committed assault if they:
- Intentionally or recklessly cause someone else to suffer injuries
- Intentionally or knowingly threaten someone else with bodily injury
- Intentionally or knowingly come into physical contact with someone else when there is reason to believe the other person will find that contact “offensive or provocative”
As you can see, the severity of an alleged assault incident can vary widely, from a threat of injuries to actual injuries. In fact, under Texas Penal Code Chapter 22, prosecutors can charge an assault as:
- A Class C, Class B, or Class A misdemeanor
- A state jail felony, a felony of the third degree, a felony of the second degree, or a felony of the first degree
The penalties you could face depend greatly on the charges against you and how they choose to file them. The consequences of a Class C misdemeanor conviction are very different than a first-degree felony conviction. Because of this, it may be possible to reduce the severity of the charges you face and thereby greatly reduce your possible sentence.
