Assault FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How is assault legally defined?

In Texas, you have two kinds of assault: simple and aggravated. In the case of “simple assault,” you are guilty of this crime if you make someone else feel apprehensive of a physical attack. You may also be guilty of simple assault if you negligently use a weapon and injure another person.

If you accidentally shoot someone while carelessly using a firearm, you may be charged with simple assault.

With aggravated assault, you must have the intent to cause serious injury or another crime (or actually cause serious bodily injury). Usually, a deadly weapon is involved in the situation. Authorities can convict you of this crime even if you don’t physically hurt someone.

This situation could be one where you point a firearm at someone and attempt to force them to hand over their belongings.

How can you defend against an assault charge?

Depending on the circumstances of your situation, you can claim self-defense, you were defending another person, or you had a lack of intent (stating it was an accident).

Can the alleged victim drop their charges?

In Texas, they cannot. This falls under the power of the prosecuting attorney. They do consider the victim’s wishes when deciding their course of action, but they can charge you even if the victim doesn’t want to.

Alleged victims can prepare an “Affidavit of Non-Prosecution” which officially declares their desire to have the case dismissed. In many (but not all) cases, these documents get cases dismissed.

Depending on the nature of your crime, a number of things can happen:

  • You could spend decades, perhaps the rest of your life, in prison
  • You could pay a fine of up to $10,000
  • Authorities may place you on probation for a long time period

  • Friends, family members, and coworkers may refuse to talk to you
