Dallas Aggravated Assault Attorney
In Texas, the crime of aggravated assault is defined loosely as causing serious bodily injury to another person, including domestic violence cases where the abuse is directed to the person's spouse.
Assault is defined as intentionally causing bodily harm, using threat in a way that the other person would fear for their safety, or contacting another person in a way that would be reasonably be considered offensive. When an aggravating factor is added to this situation, such as serious bodily injury, or the use or display of a dangerous weapon, then the assault is bumped up to a charge of aggravated assault.
About Felony Convictions
Usually crimes of this nature are considered second-degree felonies which if successfully convicted of this crime, you will face anywhere from two to twenty years in a Texas state prison, along with a monetary fine up to $10,000. For a case where it is performed in a domestic violence situation or it was performed against a person such as a public servant witness, security guard or other individual, then it becomes a first degree felony that can lead to a prison sentence of five years to life.
Consequences should not be taken lightly, and can have very serious ramifications on your life. For this reason, when you are in a situation where you are being charged with aggravated assault, do not waste any time in securing the legal assistance of a skilled Dallas criminal defense attorney.
