      Criminal Threats in Texas

      A criminal threat against a spouse, family member, household member, or dating partner constitutes an act of assault under Section 22.01 of Title 5 of the Texas Penal Code. Under this law, a criminal threat is defined as “intentionally or knowingly” threatening another with imminent bodily harm. Bodily harm means physical pain, illness, or damage to one’s physical condition. Therefore, if you place another in fear of such harm through verbal or written threats, you can be charged with domestic violence assault.

      If you have no previous domestic violence convictions, a first-time incident of a criminal threat against another in a domestic violence situation will result in a Class A misdemeanor charge. In second and subsequent incidents, the charge is elevated to a third degree felony. Conviction of a Class A misdemeanor carries is punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000. A third degree felony charge is punishable by two to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. You may also be required to pay restitution to the victim, be subject to a protective order which prohibits you from any contact with the victim, and attend and complete a domestic violence offender program. You will also have a permanent criminal record upon a conviction.
