What Is Assault?
Every state defines the crime of assault a little differently. In Texas, an assault charge must be taken seriously as it can lead to an extended time in jail, thousands of dollars in fines and a long-lasting effect on your personal and professional relationships.
With more than 20 years of criminal law experience and a reputation for aggressive and successful representation, attorney Cantrell defends Texans from all types of assault charges. Some common assault crimes include:
- Assault and battery: Two separate crimes that may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies
- Disorderly conduct: A catch-all crime that involves disruptive behavior that is not dangerous to the public
- Domestic assault: A form of domestic violence charged as a Class A misdemeanor
- Sexual assault: Committing a sexual act without consent of the other — force is not needed
Examples of other types of assault charges include:
- Assault of a police officer
- Aggravated assault
- Resisting arrest
- Vehicular assault
