      Second-Degree Felony Aggravated Assault in Texas

      Aggravated assault is considered a more serious form of assault. In Texas, simple assault occurs when a person intentionally or knowingly causes injury to another, threatens another with harm, or touches another in an offensive or provocative manner.

      An assaultive offense is elevated to aggravated assault when:

      • Serious bodily injury results; or
      • A deadly weapon is used or displayed during the assault.

      It’s important to note that assault with a deadly weapon is not limited to instances when a gun is brandished or discharged. Texas Penal Code § 1.07 defines a deadly weapon as a firearm, any object made to cause death or serious injury, or anything that can be used to inflict death or serious bodily injury. Thus, a car, bat, tree branch, or nearly any other object can be considered a deadly weapon. If such an item is used during an assault, the person may be charged with aggravated assault.

      Generally, assault with a deadly weapon or assault resulting in serious bodily injury is charged as a second-degree felony. A conviction may be penalized by between 2 and 20 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.

      Our Texas aggravated assault lawyers have a track record of results, achieving case dismissals and not guilty verdicts for past clients, and we will effectively represent you to work toward obtaining a positive outcome on your behalf.
