Frisco TX Assault Lawyer
Have You Been Accused of Assault? We’ll Protect Your Rights.
Did you know you can be charged with assault even though no one regardless of whether a victim was actually physically harmed during the incident?
The prosecution in an assault case is required to prove one of the following:
- The defendant intentionally, recklessly, or knowingly caused bodily injury to the victim.
- The defendant knowingly or intentionally threatened the victim with bodily injury.
- The defendant caused physical contact with a victim when the defendant was aware that the victim would regard that contact to be offense or provocative.
In Texas, some serious offenses can be considered aggravated assault. Aggravated assault involves the presence of a deadly weapon at the scene of the crime or an assault that caused serious bodily injury. Aggravated assault charges can result in harsher penalties if the defendant is convicted.
