Assault Charges in Texas
In Texas, assault is defined as giving another person reason to believe you will inflict physical harm against them, usually by intimidation or threatening behavior. In most cases, assault charges are made following an altercation where a threat of violence was made. Making gestures with your fists, knife, gun, or anything else that can be used as a weapon is significant enough to result in assault charges.
Assault charges in Texas can range from a misdemeanor to felony offenses depending on the severity of the alleged actions. The critical element in determining the charge level is the injury inflicted on the victim. Simple assault, also known as a Class C misdemeanor, is the least severe type of assault and typically involves threats or verbal abuse without physical contact. Assault causing bodily injury, also known as a Class A misdemeanor, involves physical contact that results in minor injuries such as cuts or bruises. Aggravated assault, which is a felony offense, involves serious bodily injury or the use of a deadly weapon. It's important to note that the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intended to cause harm or had knowledge that their actions could result in harm.
