Penalties for Domestic Assault & Aggravated Domestic Assault in Texas

Texas Penal Code § 22.01 and § 22.02 define the offenses of domestic assault and aggravated domestic assault, which carry such penalties as:

  • Domestic assault (Class A misdemeanor) may be punishable by up to 1 year in county jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000.
  • Aggravated domestic assault (third-degree felony) may be punishable by 2-10 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
  • A defendant may also be prohibited from owning a firearm and may face probation, anger management or counseling, community service, and other penalties.

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.

With first-hand knowledge of how the State handles misdemeanor and felony assault crimes, our domestic violence defense lawyers can analyze a case of family violence from the prosecution’s point of view and develop strategies to effectively defend clients against charges of domestic assault, spousal abuse, continuous violence against a family member, aggravated domestic assault, child abuse, and all other family-related offenses in Texas.
