What is Assault?

Assault, a prevalent charge in criminal law, involves intentionally causing another person to fear imminent bodily harm, creating an apprehension of harm. It's essential to note that no physical contact is necessary for an assault charge; the focus is on the threat of harm.

Degrees of Assault

Assault charges in Texas span a range from simple assault to aggravated assault. 

  • Simple assault, typically a Class C misdemeanor, involves causing apprehension of harm without aggravating factors. 
  • Aggravated assault, a more severe offense, entails specific factors such as use of a deadly weapon or causing serious bodily injury, leading to increased penalties.

Penalties for Assault in Texas

The penalties for assault in Texas vary based on several factors, including the severity of the offense and any aggravating elements present. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the case, consequences may encompass:

  • fines
  • probation
  • mandatory counseling
