There are many levels of assault charges our clients can face and depend on the accused’s criminal history and the conditions of the crime, our Houston assault lawyers will seek lesser charges or a dismissal where the evidence permits. When the former options are not available, our assault attorneys will design a successful strategy for each client’s criminal court appearance.
When Can Someone Be Charged with Assault in Houston, Texas?
Assault charges can be brought under a very large scope of actions under three different circumstances in Texas.
Including when a person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly:
- Causes bodily injury
- Threatens imminent bodily injury
- Causes physical contact with another knowing, or reasonably should have known, that person would find it offensive or provocative
Last year, according to the Houston Police Department crime statistics, nearly 900 more Houston residents were seriously assaulted over the summer and fall months than the same seasons the previous year.
The same statistics reported 875 more aggravated assaults — those using weapons to cause serious injury — over the same time, compared to the previous year; a nearly 17% increase.
As these crime figures grow, the courts will work hard to make an example of those who have assault charges pending, which could lead to an unfair outcome for those who do not have an experienced criminal defense attorney by their side.
Do not allow the prosecutor or criminal court judge to seek the maximum penalties against you, simply because you do not have the proper legal representation.
