Defense Attorney Experienced in all Varieties of Assault Charges

Our firm can defend you against all varieties of assault and battery charges. Some cases may involve simple assault in which the accused allegedly threatened violence, but no physical contact was made. We also handle cases involving simple battery in which physical contact was allegedly involved.

Prosecutors must prove one of the following: The defendant intentionally, knowingly or recklessly caused bodily injury to the victim; The defendant intentionally or knowingly threatened the victim with imminent bodily injury; or The defendant intentionally or knowingly caused physical contact with the victim when the defendant knew or should have reasonably believed that the victim would regard the contact as offensive or provocative. In addition, Hesse can handle serious aggravated assault cases. The Texas Penal Code describes assaultive offenses as:

Section 22.01. ASSAULT.

  1. (1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another, including the person's spouse;
  2. (2) intentionally or knowingly threatens another with imminent bodily injury, including the person's spouse; or
  3. (3) intentionally or knowingly causes physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative.

Assault convictions are classified as felonies and carry serious penalties. A simple assault in which no injuries occur is usually a Class C Misdemeanor but can carry up to one year of jail time. Aggravated assault charges in some circumstances can be classified as a first degree felony with penalties of up to life imprisonment. You need the best legal protection available to defend you against these types of charges. A criminal conviction will have serious and long-reaching consequences in all areas of your life.
