Assault & Battery The Experience of a Former Prosecutor

Corpus Christi Assault Attorney

Assault and Battery in Texas

While assault and battery are considered separate crimes in some states, they are often committed in conjunction with one another. Assault generally refers to the threat of bodily injury whereas battery generally refers to the physical infliction of bodily injury. However, in Texas, the term assault is used when referring to all assaultive offenses.

What Should I Do If I Was Charged With Assault?

If you have been charged with assault, it is imperative that you take immediate action and retain a trusted, experienced Corpus Christi assault lawyer for your case. An assault charge can have long lasting reaches in terms of your freedoms and your future.

What Are the Assault Charges in Texas?

Assault and aggravated assault charges can be devastating, and a charge is very serious. According to Texas Penal Code ยง 22.01, a person commits assault if they:

  • Intentionally or recklessly cause bodily injury to another person
  • Intentionally threaten another person with imminent bodily injury
  • Intentionally or knowingly cause offensive or provocative physical contact with another person

Assault can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony depending on the specific details of the crime as outlined in Chapter 22 of the Texas Penal Code.

I, Robert J. Gonzalez, will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case, inform of you of the proceedings that are happening and keep you in touch throughout the course of your case. I understand that this time in your life may be difficult, but with my aggressive representation, you could see a dismissal or reduction in charges.

If charged, the consequences for your actions are likely to depend on a variety of factors, such as:

  • How early you hire your attorney.
  • Your existing criminal record.
  • The severity of your transgression.
  • How well your attorney represents your case.
