Conroe Assault Defense Attorney

Understanding the Charges Against You

A person commits assault if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes or threatens bodily injury to another. There are two classifications for assault crimes: assault and aggravated assault. Assault is a misdemeanor offense unless the victim is a public servant or a family member and the person charged has previously been convicted of assault. In these types of cases, the offense is classified as a felony.

Aggravated Assault Charges

Aggravated assault occurs when a person intentionally or knowingly inflicts bodily injury upon another person and causes serious bodily injury to another or uses or exhibits a deadly weapon during the commission of the assault. Aggravated assault is a felony offense.

Domestic Violence / Family Violence Assault

Family violence, also referred to as domestic violence, is physical, mental, or emotional that occurs within a family setting. Domestic abuse may occur between spouses, co-habitants, parents, children, and siblings.

Family violence assault is usually classified as a misdemeanor. However, charges may be enhanced if the victim is a minor, if the victim sustained serious bodily injury, if the accused has a prior criminal record, or if the accused has prior family violence convictions.

A conviction for a family violence assault will cost the person convicted of their firearm rights under the second amendment. Call Attorney Doug Atkinson today if you are charged with family violence assault.

What to Expect in an Assault Case

Any person who is convicted of assault, aggravated assault, or family violence may be sentenced with jail or prison time, fines, probation, and community service. Additionally, the person may have to adhere to the terms of a court issued restraining order or order of protection.
