Potential Punishment for a Conviction
The most common type of assault charge prosecuted in Denton County is a Class A misdemeanor whose punishment range can be as much as a year in the Denton County Jail and a fine not to exceed $4000.00. Family violence cases can also be charged as Class A misdemeanors, however, these cases also carry with them an affirmative finding that family violence has taken place. This specific legal finding can have drastic consequences on an individual’s life such as a lifetime ban on possessing a firearm and a permanent mark on your criminal record.
Felony Assault cases are generally classified as Aggravated Assault Causing Serious Bodily Injury and Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon. Both types of cases can carry with them a family violence finding if applicable. Serious Bodily injury is defined as bodily injury that creates a substantial risk of death, serious permanent disfigurement, or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ. “Deadly Weapon” means a firearm or anything manifestly designed, made, or adapted for the purpose inflicting death or serious bodily injury, or anything that in the manner of its use or intended use is capable of causing death or serious bodily injury. Obviously these are very serious charges whose punishment ranger under certain circumstances can be up to life in prison.
