Violent Crimes in Texas

Some violent crimes result in misdemeanor charges, such as assault and battery, verbal threats, domestic assault, or arson, causing up to $1,500 in damage. Other violent crimes are considered more serious and could result in felony charges. Our violent crime lawyer in Navarro and Ellis counties represents clients charged with misdemeanors and felonies.

Some examples of felony violent crimes include:

  • Deadly misconduct
  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated domestic assault
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Assault against a police officer or emergency medical personnel
  • Kidnapping
  • Arson causing more than $1,500 in damage
  • Robbery
  • Hit-and-run resulting in injury
  • Sexual assault

Regardless of the type of charges, a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record that will complicate your life in ways you can’t predict. A felony conviction will result in longer jail or prison sentences, higher fines, and other legal penalties. Additionally, a felony record will make it difficult to secure housing, find gainful employment, work in certain professions requiring licensure, and pursue higher education.

It is important to avoid making any statements or confessions to police, family, or anyone else before speaking with an attorney. We are prepared to take the necessary steps to protect your constructional rights and build a strong defense for your case.
