Types of Assault in Texas
Assault involves the threat of injury and actual bodily injury to another that is done knowingly and intentionally. This means that you can be arrested for merely threatening another with imminent bodily harm without actually having touched the alleged victim.
The various types of assault in Texas include:
- Misdemeanor assault, including Class C, Class B, and Class A misdemeanors
- Third-degree felony assault
- Aggravated felony assault, charged as second- or first-degree assault
- Domestic violence assault
Simple assault occurs when you threaten someone or touch them in a provocative or offensive matter. This is charged as a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500. When the victim of assault is a family member, person you are dating, or public servant, it is charged as a third-degree felony carrying penalties of 2 to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Aggravated assaults involve the use of a deadly weapon or serious bodily harm to the victim and are punishable by up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
