Assault offenses in Texas can range in severity from misdemeanors to aggravated felony assaults. The term assault generally refers to an attack on another person. The range of punishment for an assault often depends on the nature of the injury or prospective injury that occurred. A simple shove, push, or even a verbal assault can result in an arrest and fine.
If bodily injury occurs, or could have occurred, a person can be jailed for up to one year in Texas. If serious bodily injury occurred or a deadly weapon was used, the assault becomes a felony. If you are arrested for assault, do not hesitate to contact an attorney in Brownsville TX.
