An assault can range from a mere threat to causing bodily injury to another. Generally, assaults are punished as misdemeanors but can become felonies, even aggravated felonies, under circumstances. An aggravated assault is defined as an assault that causes serious bodily injury or involves a deadly weapon
Punishment for an assault can range from probation to imprisonment. Additionally, if the assault is deemed family violence, the stigma can cause a person lateral consequences. Hence, if you are charged or arrested for misdemeanor or felony assault, you should call experienced Dallas Criminal Defense Attorneys immediately.
