Assault Defense Lawyer in Lubbock, Midland, Odessa, Amarillo, Abilene
Under Texas law, a person can be convicted of assault either intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly. Often, the accused cause or threaten to cause bodily injury to another person. Intentionally or knowingly coming into physical contact with another person when the contact would be deemed offensive or unwanted is equally important in assault defense cases. This, of course, is the simplest form of assault.
Other forms include aggravated assault, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault of a public servant, as well as many others. Depending on which type of assault you or a family member have been accused of, the potential consequences of one of these charges could range anywhere from probation to 20 years in prison.
