San Antonio Assault Attorney

Facing assault charges in San Antonio, TX?

Being convicted of any assault even if it does not involve family violence can carry serious penalties and leave you with a permanent criminal record. Your future employment opportunities can be put at risk, along with your financial health and livelihood. Texas law enforcement takes assault cases very seriously, especially when they involve domestic (family) violence or a peace officer. If arrested, you could face either misdemeanor or felony charges. In some cases, actual physical touching or hitting is not required to file an assault charge against you. Further information can be obtained by contacting a San Antonio criminal attorney at my firm.

What exactly is assault?

While laws can vary from state to state, in Texas it is defined in three ways:

  • Causing bodily injury to another intentionally and recklessly
  • Threatening another intentionally and knowingly with imminent injury to the body
  • Intentionally causing physical contact that can be regarded as provocative or offensive

In other words, a common misunderstanding is that physical contact must be made to be charged with assault. This is not the case; in fact, a heated argument could lead to an arrest. When the assault involves an emergency worker, security guard, public servant, or domestic violence, charges and potential punishment can be harsher.

Police many times need very little evidence to make an assault arrest. Often times once the police respond to a disturbance call someone will end up being arrested regardless of whether or not they were simply defending themselves. The prosecutors on these types of cases are often overzealous. Before you speak with the police, protect your legal rights by contacting The Law Office of Rolando Ramos. As an experienced lawyer, I will provide you with a strong criminal defense and intimate level of service. I will work tirelessly in your case.
