In Texas, assault is defined as intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily injury to another person, threatening bodily injury, or causing physical contact that the perpetrator knows will be perceived as provocative or offensive.
An assault may be considered either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the nature and severity of the alleged crime. Here is a closer look at these two classifications and the penalties they carry in Texas:
- Class A Misdemeanor Assault: Class A involves physical injury. It can carry up to one year in prison and a maximum fine of $4,000.
- Class B Misdemeanor Assault: This rare classification pertains to the criminal assault of an athlete or coach by a spectator. Class B misdemeanor assault can carry maximum penalties of six months in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.
- Class C Misdemeanor Assault: Assault involving offensive physical contact or the threat of injury (but not actually resulting in serious physical injury) is considered a Class C misdemeanor. Defendants face a maximum penalty of a $500 fine.
- First-Degree Felony Assault: A first-degree felony assault is characterized by aggravated assault (meaning it caused serious harm or involved a deadly weapon). It can carry a life sentence.
- Second-Degree Felony Assault: Assault of a police officer, court judge, family member, or domestic partner is classified as a second-degree felony. This crime can carry a punishment of up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
- Third-Degree Felony Assault: This pertains to the assault of a government official, public servant, security officer, emergency medical technician, or pregnant person. It carries up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
What If I Was Acting In Self-Defense?
Self-defense is the cornerstone of many criminal defense strategies in assault cases. Defendants can also claim to have been protecting others or their own property. However, no matter how clear-cut you may believe the circumstances of the incident are, Texas requires that you prove that you used the minimum amount of force possible in order to protect yourself or others.
You must also prove that there was physical violence or, at the very least, a threat of physical violence against you. In other words, if it can be demonstrated that the other party posed no threat or that you used excessive force, you may still face criminal penalties.
If you were acting in self-defense, criminal defense attorney Jason Trumpler can compile evidence to demonstrate to the courts that you were justified in taking action against the other party and that the amount of force used was reasonable for the purposes of protecting yourself and others.
DWI and Assault
If you are charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) and injuring someone with your vehicle, it is considered intoxicated assault, which is a third-degree felony. Attorney Jason Trumpler, serving Greater Round Rock, Texas, has tried more than 100 DWI cases in Texas and California, helping many defendants to avoid suffering unjust penalties.
Although intoxicated assault is a serious crime deserving harsh punishment, the truth is that there are many flaws in law enforcement's methods of determining whether a driver is truly intoxicated. Our lawyer is here to provide criminal defense services to clients throughout the Round Rock, TX, area, helping them to avoid bearing the consequences of faulty police work and other injustice.
