An assault is any type of intentional, knowing, or reckless physical contact that causes bodily injury (pain). Generally, this is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $4,000 and up to 365 days in the county jail, and / or a probated term of up to 2 years.

Examples of assault can include:

  • Hitting

  • Striking

  • Kicking

  • Punching

  • Choking

Aggravated Assault

An aggravated assault can be committed by threatening or causing bodily injury (pain) while using or displaying a deadly weapon. Serious bodily injury causes a substantial risk of death or disfigurement or long-term impairment. Generally, aggravated assault is a second-degree felony punishable by a fine not to exceed $10,000 and up to 20 years confinement in prison.

When charged with a violent crime, the stakes are raised. Prosecutors faced with a community demanding they "get tough on crime" have their backs to the wall. You could be facing serious jail time as well as having a record of a violent crime that will follow you for the rest of your life. Having an experienced and able trial attorney can make all the difference in your outcome.

ERIC

"Mr. Bloomquist took the time to explain the entire legal proceedings and answered every question that I had thoroughly which prompted me to hire him immediately. After two and a half years after the false allegation was made and with three different law enforcement agencies pursuing an arrest, I was indicted on a felony crime within Bexar county in June of 2015. During the next 26 months of uncertainty, Mr. Bloomquist aggressively attacked and challenged the state's evidence and even scared off two to the top prosecutors within the district attorneys office on taking this case to a jury trial. After months of hard work and an extensive knowledge of the law, the state dismissed their case against me."
