Texas Penal Code § 22.01 and § 22.02 define the offenses of domestic assault and aggravated domestic assault, which carry such penalties as:
Domestic violence, for the most part, shares many of the same aspects with a simple assault on any individual: injury, threats, or unwanted physical contact. In these cases, however, such action is considered domestic violence if the victim is currently or was previously in a romantic relationship with the defendant, or if the victim is a member of the defendant’s family or household.
