San Antonio Assault Lawyer

If you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor or felony assault, you might think that a guilty verdict is a foregone conclusion. However, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution, and you have the right to defend yourself in court. More than that, you owe it to yourself to fight back, or you’ll be certain to face strict penalties that might include time in jail, expensive fines, and loss of privileges such as the right to own a firearm and vote in elections.

The prosecution started building its case against you before you were even charged. Thus, you need to act quickly by contacting a San Antonio assault lawyer. Your attorney can review the evidence to demine the strength of the prosecution’s case. After a review, your lawyer can discuss your legal options and defense strategies.

Types of Assault Charges

Our San Antonio assault lawyer represents clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges. This includes charges for:

  • Class C misdemeanor assault
  • Class B misdemeanor assault
  • Class A misdemeanor assault
  • Third-degree felony assault
  • Second-degree felony assault
  • First-degree felony assault

If convicted, you can face much more than just the maximum penalties. A criminal record will also follow you and can hold you back, so contact our assault lawyer today to discuss your case.

MISDEMEANOR ASSAULT CHARGES IN SAN ANTONIO

Class C misdemeanor assault is the least serious of all charges, but it still has consequences. You’ll be charged with this you allegedly touched someone in a knowingly provocative or offensive way or threatened harm. If you’re found guilty, you’ll have to pay a $500 fine, and the conviction will go on your record.

Class B misdemeanor assault has a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $2,000 fine. You’ll face this charge if you allegedly threatened or provoked a referee or anyone else participating in a sporting event where you’re a spectator.

Finally, you can be charged with Class A misdemeanor assault if you’ve allegedly caused bodily injury to someone else. If convicted, you face up to a year in prison and a $4,000 fine.

A San Antonio assault lawyer can negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce or dismiss charges. However, if the prosecutor refuses to negotiate, your attorney will prepare the case for trial.

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT CHARGES IN SAN ANTONIO

Aggravated assault is charged as a first- or second-degree felony. You’ll be charged with a second-degree felony if the state alleges that you intentionally, recklessly, or knowingly caused serious bodily injury or threatened an individual with a weapon.

However, your charge will be elevated to a first-degree felony if the alleged victim was a public servant on duty or a witness or informant. Also, aggravated assault is a first-degree felony when it involves domestic violence.

You can be fined up to $10,000 if convicted of either. Also, a second-degree conviction includes up to 20 years in prison, while you can be sentenced to up to 99 years in prison for a first-degree assault conviction.

Along with those penalties, a felony conviction can prevent you from owning a firearm and voting in elections. Thus, consult with a San Antonio assault lawyer so you can fight the charges.

WHAT IS BODILY INJURY?

The state has to demonstrate that you caused bodily injury to convict you of a Class A misdemeanor. In Texas, this means that the incident caused pain, which is subjective. Fortunately, your San Antonio assault lawyer can mount a defense to show it’s not likely that the person experienced pain, if that’s where the evidence points. Additionally, your lawyer might be able to reduce the charges to a Class C misdemeanor, which doesn’t include jail time. Consult with an attorney today so you can begin working on your defense.

WHAT IS SERIOUS BODILY INJURY?

The state must prove that you caused serious bodily injury to convict you of first- or second-degree aggravated assault. This means that you either caused another person’s death or put the person at risk of death. Additionally, it’s defined as an injury that causes protracted loss, impairment, or permanent disfigurement. Your San Antonio assault lawyer will review the evidence to ensure it meets the criteria. If not, your attorney can work on dismissing or reducing the charges. Additionally, your lawyer will prepare for trial.
