Taking The Right Steps After An Arrest For Assault

In Texas, assault charges can range from misdemeanor assault to felony assault, with numerous charges falling in both categories. An individual can be charged with assault with a bodily injury if the alleged victim felt pain after the encounter, even if there are no visible bruises or scratches.

Just because you are accused of assault doesn't mean you are guilty of a crime. Your situation may be complex. You deserve to tell your side of the story.
