Assault Defense Attorneys in San Antonio

Representation for Offensive Touching Charges in TX

Many states have laws defining assault and battery as separate crimes and different charges. In Texas, however, all types of unwanted or offensive touching are lumped into one criminal charge. Assault is broadly defined and includes anything from punching someone in a bar fight to spitting on someone. You can even be charged with assault for simply attempting to harm someone, even if they do not suffer any physical harm.

If you have been charged with assault, you need the support of a trusted defense attorney. At LaHood Norton Law Group, we offer aggressive representation for Texas’ criminally accused. With our San Antonio assault defense attorneys on your side, you will be positioned for success from the very beginning.

Types of Assault Charges in Texas

Because assault is so broadly defined by Texas law, many people face serious charges because of a simple mistake or misunderstanding.

You could be charged with assault if you:

  • Intentionally or recklessly cause someone serious bodily injury
  • Threaten to cause someone imminent bodily injury
  • Conduct physical contact that is known to be provocative or offensive

Simple Assault Texas

Simple assault is the basic type of assault charge. It can be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony.

  • Misdemeanor simple assault involves threatening or causing bodily harm without any aggravating factors.
  • Felony simple assault involves aggravating factors and certain types of victims.

For example, you could face a felony simple assault charge if the alleged victim was a public servant, a family member, or emergency services personnel.
