Dallas Assault Attorney
Three Crimes Classified As Assault In Texas
Assaults happen, or are alleged to happen, in just about any situation — in a bar, at a sport event, on the highway, in a parking lot, in the home or neighborhood. Sometimes they are attacks by one person on another, but more often they are complicated events in which both sides provoke the other.
In Class A assault, all a prosecutor has to prove is that the altercation resulted in the other person feeling pain. Many assault cases arise from incidents involving a simple slap or bumping into the other person. But simple actions can lead to a lot of legal hurt — up to a year in jail.
Aggravated assault requires serious bodily injury, which can lead to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Serious bodily injury must result in a significant risk of death, disfigurement or lasting impairment of some bodily function.
Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon means that a weapon was involved: a knife, a gun, a car, a hockey stick, anything that might cause serious injury.
