Texas Battery Defense Attorney
Arrested For a Serious Offense? Know Your Options.
While many states separate and treat assault and battery as two different crimes, Texas uses the same elements to prove battery as they would to prove assault.
What Is Battery in Law?
In law, battery occurs when an individual intentionally causes bodily harm, threatens the victim, or knowingly makes physical contact with the victim in a violent manner. It is a physical act that results in offensive or harmful contact with another person without that person's consent.

The Reality of a Battery Charge
