According to Texas law, you can be charged with aggravated assault if you intentionally, knowingly or recklessly assault another person and in the course of doing so either cause serious bodily injury or exhibit a deadly weapon during the assault. Under typical circumstances, aggravated assault is a second-degree felony but in certain circumstances it can be a first degree felony such as if the assault was committed against a public servant.
A conviction for a first degree aggravated assault felony, you could face up to life in prison. A conviction for a second degree felony could be punished from two to 20 years in prison, along with a $10,000 fine. For this reason, it is absolutely necessary that you contact a competent criminal defense attorney who will work for the best possible result in your case.
