The Defense You Need Against Texas Assault Charges

The term “assault” applies to many different things under Texas criminal law. An assault can be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. The details of your case matter. They must be reviewed carefully by your attorney to make sure your defense strategy is the right one.

Criminal Charges in Texas

The crime of assault can lead to anything from a Class C misdemeanor charge to a first degree felony charge. Your case could involve:

  • Assault
  • Domestic Violence
  • Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon
  • Aggravated Assault with Bodily Injury
  • Serious Bodily Injury
  • Intoxicated Assault
  • Intoxicated Manslaughter
  • Sexual Assault

In each of these cases, a conviction can land you in serious trouble. Your freedom and your future are at risk when facing criminal allegations.

Accusations of Criminal Sexual Conduct

Sex crimes carry a serious social cost, alongside the potential for criminal penalties. The sooner you can address any charges against you, the better your chances are of getting a fair outcome.

Keith Gore can start helping you before the problem gets out of hand. If you are under investigation for a sex crime, he can help you prepare for the grand jury process. Grand jury representation is about presenting information to the grand jury to stop it from going to court. If the matter can be settled at this stage, you may be able to escape the social stigma that attaches to anyone who faces these charges, regardless of guilt.

Investigation in these cases can take 6 to 12 months before any charges are filed. If an investigator, Child Protective Services official, or police officer contacts you to discuss a possible sex offense, call an attorney immediately.
