Types of Assault Charges in Texas

According to Texas Law, an individual may be charged with assault if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly. There are several classifications of assault. The type of assault charge will be determined based on the nature and severity of the crime from a Class C misdemeanor all the way up to a first-degree felony. Due to the complexity and continual evolution of state laws, it is best to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you understand your particular situation.

You can be charge if you:

  • Causes bodily injury to another, including the person’s spouse
  • Threatens another with imminent bodily injury, including the person’s spouse
  • Causes physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative
