Assault Charges in Texas

In Texas, assault can be charged if you threaten someone with bodily injury, intentionally cause harm to another individual, or if you intentionally create physical contact with someone that could be considered aggressive, offensive, or violent. Assault can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, and may hold additional penalties such as battery, sexual misconduct, or civil charges.

Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be charged with:

  • Class C Misdemeanor: Class C is generally charged if there is a threat of physical injury or contact but no other factors were present.
  • Class B Misdemeanor: Class B could be charged if you knowingly caused harm to someone who is participating in a sporting event and you were not a part of the event as a player or within retaliation due to the sporting event.
  • Class A Misdemeanor: If no aggravating factors are found other than the evidence of physical harm, you may be charged with a Class C misdemeanor.
  • Third-Degree Felony: Felony charges can be brought against you if you committed assault against a public servant, security officer, government workers, or a family member or someone you are in an intimate relationship with.
  • Second-Degree Felony: In addition to committing assault against a family member or someone you are in an intimate relationship with, a second-degree felony could be charged against you if you are a repeat offender or if you choked or blocked the victim from breathing.
  • First-Degree Felony: Violence against an individual that you are in a domestic relationship with or any police officer, public official or emergency worker could land you with a first-degree felony.

In some cases, aggravating factors could increase your charges, especially if serious bodily injury occurred to the victim or if you used a weapon or deadly force within the assault.
