Aggravated Assault Defense Lawyer in San Antonio, Texas
Assaults are classified as either simple or aggravated. It depends on the severity of the harm that takes place or is likely to occur.
An aggravated assault offense can result from using exceptionally dangerous or harmful means to commit the crime, directing an assault towards a specific class of person, or committing the offense with a specific level of criminal intent.
For example, if the assault results in serious bodily injury, it can be charged as an aggravated assault and battery.
Penalties for aggravated assault, a second-degree felony, can include 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. If the aggravated assault is committed against a member of your family or household, a public servant, a security officer, in retaliation against a witness or informant, you could be charged with a first-degree felony and face up to 99 years in prison.
Thus, aggravated assault is a severe offense, and having a conviction on your criminal record for this crime can cause a long-lasting impact on your life.
