What You Need to Know About Assault & Battery in Texas

In Texas, assault encompasses both the threat of harm (commonly known as assault in other states) and the actual physical act (battery). This broad definition includes non-violent physical contact perceived as offensive, such as unwelcome touching or grabbing. Charges range from misdemeanors to felonies, depending on the severity and circumstances.

Classifications of Misdemeanor Assault

  • Class C Misdemeanor: Involves non-violent physical contact deemed offensive or provocative.
  • Class B Misdemeanor: Escalates if the offense involves a sports official or is in retaliation to a sports-related incident.
  • Class A Misdemeanor: Includes minor physical altercations leading to pain, even without visible injury.

Texas Laws and Penalties on Drug Crimes

Texas penalizes various drug-related offenses, from possession to manufacturing and distribution. The severity of the charge depends on various factors, including the type and quantity of the substance. Our experienced team at Robert D. Clements, Jr. Law Group, LLLPknows how to navigate these complex laws to defend our clients effectively.


Texas Has Strict Laws on DUI/DWI

In Texas, DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) is taken seriously, with stringent laws and penalties. Intoxication can be due to alcohol, drugs, or a combination and is often determined by blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels. Our skilled attorneys understand DUI/DWI laws and can challenge the evidence and procedures used in these cases.

Penalties for DWI in Texas escalate with each offense, ranging from fines and community service to prison time. Even a first offense carries substantial consequences. Our firm’s approach is to meticulously examine each aspect of the case, from BAC testing methods to the conduct of the arresting officers, ensuring a strong defense.


The Spectrum of Felonies in Texas

Felonies in Dallas include a range of serious offenses, from drug charges and DWI to aggravated assault and white-collar crimes. These charges carry severe penalties, including long-term imprisonment and hefty fines.


Types and Penalties of Felonies

Felonies in Texas are categorized from State Jail Felonies to Capital Felonies. The severity of the punishment aligns with the degree of the felony, with Capital Felonies carrying the most severe penalties, including life imprisonment or the death penalty. Our legal team at Robert D. Clements, Jr. Law Group, LLLPis experienced in handling all types of felony cases, providing our clients with knowledgeable and aggressive representation.


Habitual and Repeat Felony Offenders

Texas law imposes stricter penalties for repeat offenders. This means a prior felony conviction can escalate the severity of the charges and penalties in a new case. Our role is to navigate these complexities and advocate for our clients, aiming to minimize the impact of past offenses on current charges.


Sex, Theft, and Violent Crimes in Texas

At Robert D. Clements, Jr. Law Group, LLLP, our seasoned attorneys possess a deep understanding of sex crime cases. These crimes range from sexual assault, internet sex crimes, and prostitution to indecent exposure and child pornography. In Texas, the severity of these crimes can vary, with misdemeanors attracting fines and potential jail time and felonies leading to extensive prison sentences and hefty fines.

Moreover, sex offender registration in Texas is a critical aspect, necessitating offenders to provide comprehensive personal details to law enforcement, with stringent requirements for updating this information. Non-compliance can result in severe legal consequences.


Theft Crimes in Texas

Theft crimes in Texas encompass various offenses, from minor shoplifting to more serious cases like grand larceny. The penalties for theft crimes are determined based on the value of the stolen property, with higher values leading to more severe charges. Our legal team can handle these cases, focusing on reducing the charges or seeking alternative resolutions.

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes in Texas include offenses such as:

  • Homicide
  • Manslaughter
  • Robbery
  • Assault
  • Organized criminal activity

These crimes are taken very seriously in Texas, often resulting in significant legal repercussions, including long-term imprisonment. Our approach at Robert D.
