What Is Assault in Texas?
Assault is an intentional act that causes another person to feel afraid of imminent harm or experience physical or verbal abuse. It is a misdemeanor offense that can lead to serious penalties if you are convicted.
The penalties you may face for assault will depend on the severity of the charges. For example, misdemeanor assault can lead to up to 180 days in jail and $2,000 in fines. Aggravated assault can be charged as a felony and result in 2 to 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
