Aggressive Defense Strategies for Aggravated Charges in TX

Simple assault usually involves minor injury or a limited threat of violence and is the least serious form of assault. Aggravated assault involves circumstances that make the crime more serious, as in the victim is threatened with or has experienced violence amounting to significantly more than a minor slap across the face or a punch in the jaw.

What is Aggravated Assault?

Assault charges of any kind can result in serious and long-term penalties, but an aggravated assault conviction can be even more damaging to your life and your future. Aggravated assault is considered a felony and the two aggravating factors are serious bodily injury or presence of a deadly weapon.

What Makes a Crime Aggravated?

  • Striking or threatening to strike a person with a weapon or dangerous object
  • Shooting a person with a gun or threatening to kill someone while pointing a gun at the victim
  • Assault with the intent to commit another felony crime, such as robbery or rape
  • Assault resulting in serious physical injury
  • Assault (threat of violence) while concealing one’s identity
  • Assault against a member of a protected class, such as a police officer, healthcare provider, social services worker, or developmentally disabled or elderly person

Penalties for Aggravated Assault in Texas

Aggravated assault is typically a felony punishable by approximately 1 to 20 years in prison, depending on the specific provisions of each state’s sentencing statute or sentencing guidelines. The judge can exercise some discretion on the length of the sentence and whether to allow the defendant to serve any portion of the sentence.

In Texas, aggravated assault can be felonies of the first- or second-degree.

  • First-Degree Felony: domestic violence with deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury

    • 5 years to life in prison

  • Second-Degree Felony: serious bodily injury or threatened use of deadly weapon

    • 2 years to 20 years in prison
