Assault Protecting & Defending the Rights of the Accused

Bryan, TX Assault Defense Attorney

Is Assault a Felony in Texas?

Assault charges can range from a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500, which is the least serious, all the way up to a first-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine. For example, threatening or harming public servants, emergency medical personnel, family services personnel, and household members is a third-degree felony assault. This charge is elevated to a second-degree felony in domestic assault cases involving previous convictions. Assault is also elevated to “aggravated” assault when a serious injury results or when a dangerous weapon is used.

Basically, you can commit assault in three ways:

  • You intentionally or knowingly threaten another with physical harm
  • You intentionally or knowingly cause some kind of physical contact with another that is offensive or meant to provoke
  • You intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause bodily injury to another

You can be charged with assault even if you never actually make physical contact or hurt the other person. Merely threatening someone with your fists or any kind of weapon constitutes a form of basic assault.
