Assault Defense in Texas
Facing Assault Charges? Contact a TX Criminal Defense Lawyer
An assault charge can derail a person’s future in an instant. Oftentimes
committed in conjunction with battery, assault is by definition an “intentional
act by one person that creates an apprehension in another of an imminent
harmful or offensive contact.” Under this definition, the act of
instilling fear of harm in another person is punishable in and of itself,
regardless of whether or not any actual physical contact takes place.
This loose definition opens up the possibility for a person to easily
make false allegations of assault.
