Assaults are serious offenses that can result in felony charges. Assault charges may result from a physical act of violence or the threat of an act of violence. If a deadly weapon is used, a person may be charged with aggravated assault and could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.


While many offenses are prosecuted in the state courts, there are some matters that may result in federal charges. Federal charges may include drug crimes or white-collar offenses such as wire fraud because the crime goes across state lines. 


One of the most serious criminal offenses in the State of Texas is murder. Killing another human being, however, is not always straightforward. In some instances, there may be mitigating circumstances, such as if it occurred by accident or in the heat of passion. 

Family Violence

In Texas, when an act of violence is committed against a spouse or another household member, it may be considered family violence. These acts may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies depending on the individual circumstances of the case.


Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is unlawful in Texas, but it is not limited to driving under the influence of alcohol. You can also get a DWI if you drive while impaired by a controlled substance, including over-the-counter or prescription medications.


If you unlawfully take property with the intent to deprive the owner of the property, you may be charged with theft. The value of the property taken will generally determine whether it is charged as a misdemeanor or felony. 


Burglary is the crime of unlawfully entering a building habitation with the intent to commit a felony, theft, or assault. It is generally charged as a state jail felony but may carry additional penalties if there are extenuating circumstances.

Sexual Assault

Being charged with sexual assault can ruin your reputation. Even if you are not convicted, you may still face serious repercussions at work and in your personal life. If you are arrested for sexual assault, you need an attorney who will fight to protect your rights.
