Experienced Texas Criminal Assault Defense Lawyer

Assaults can be misdemeanor assaults or felony assaults. Simple assaults that result in relatively minor injury are often misdemeanor assaults, and can lead to a year in jail and a substantial fine. A more serious assault which may include more serious injury is a 3rd degree felony assault, which can carry a prison sentence of 2-10 years in jail.

Aggravated assaults are 2nd degree felony assaults or 1st degree felony assaults. They can carry up to 20 years in prison, and a life sentence for a 1st degree felony assault.

Other types of assaults include:

  • Sexual assault (rape)
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Domestic violence

Assault charges are serious and you may not only be facing serious prison time, but also the prospect of a permanent criminal record. For that reason, you should seek counsel from an experienced criminal defense attorney who can counsel you on the law and criminal process, as well as provide you with a quality defense tailored to get you the best possible results.
