Round Rock Assault Lawyer
Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Williamson County
A person commits an assault if he intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly
causes bodily injury to another person. An assault charge can have a variety
of consequences, depending on the facts of the case. Possible penalties
include jail time, probation, fines, mandatory anger management courses,
loss of your right to possess firearms and incarceration in a state prison.
If you have been charged with assault, contact a
Round Rock criminal defense attorney at The Law Office of Ryan H. Deck to determine the best way to proceed
with your defense. We have many years of experience representing clients
in assault cases, and can explain your legal alternatives.
Witnesses can be very important when defending an assault charge. Our firm
uses a private investigator to interview anyone who witnessed the assault,
and will compile witness testimony for your defense. Many times self-defense
can be used as a strategy when fighting assault charges. Assault allegations
can also be disputed if the accuser has been untruthful in any way. If
there are no witnesses, and you need to testify in your own defense, we
will prepare you to take the stand with confidence. Our firm will make
certain that, one way or another, your side of the story gets heard.
Defense in Assault Cases
You do not have to actually intend to assault someone in order to be charged
with an assault. In fact, simply threatening a person with imminent bodily
injury is an assault. Also, "bodily injury" is defined very
broadly as anything that causes physical pain. Therefore, a person can
be charged with assault in what may seem like a very minor altercation.
A vigorous defense is necessary to protect your rights and ensure that
the state proves each and every element of the assault charge beyond a
reasonable doubt. Our firm has the
criminal defense knowledge and skills needed to provide legal counsel and zealous representation
if you have been charged with assault.
