Aggravated assault is a charge defined in the Texas statutes. Generally speaking, it involves use of a deadly weapon or serious harm to another person. A charge of aggravated assault poses the threat of jail time and large fines. However, prosecutors must:
a) charge you with a particular crime, and then
b) prove each and every element of the charge.
That is where we come in. We will not allow our clients to be railroaded, have their constitutional rights trampled, or be mistreated by police, prosecutors or the criminal justice system. We know that your actions may well have been justified and undeserving of punishment, and will stand by you at every stage of your case. Contact a Houston aggravated assault lawyer.
We handle cases involving charges including:
When we negotiate with prosecutors, they know, and we know, that they must prove to a jury "beyond a reasonable doubt" that our client violated the law. If they blink, or see that we can cast doubt on their case, they suddenly become open to a lesser charge or penalty.
Defenses include self-defense; protection of property or another person; mutual combat; accident; provocation; and lack of intent to commit the crime. From the outset, we challenge any and all evidence the state plans to use against you, from witness statements, to lab reports, to weapons evidence. We oppose motions or legal maneuvers by the prosecution. We can often have charges reduced to a misdemeanor.
