Penalties for Assault in Texas
When there is only minor injury involved, you can be charged with a misdemeanor and walk away with a penalty of $4,000, but the charges can rise up to a felony that carries penalties of two to ten years in prison. If a deadly weapon was used as part of the assault, the penalties will likely be much higher. The stakes significantly rise and you could even face second-degree felony charges for this act. Our firm has private investigators on staff who can work toward finding a solution to your problem. If the state’s evidence does not represent what we have discovered, our lawyers will bring the truth to light.
