Strategic Legal Counsel After Assault Charges

If you have been charged with assault, it is essential that you contact a criminal defense lawyer in San Antonio immediately. Assault is a broad legal category that isn't always connected to a physical act of violence. The mere intent or attempt to physically harm someone can result in an assault charge - whether or not the victim actually suffered any physical harm. When you hear the phrase "assault and battery," the word assault refers to the attempt and battery refers to the physical violence that was done.

Types of assault can include:

  • Verbal assault
  • Simple assault
  • Physical assault
  • Aggravated assault
  • Sexual assault

As its name suggests, verbal assault does not involve physical violence but can still result in psychological injury. Simple assault does not involve the use of a weapon and only results in minor injuries. If the injuries are more severe, the attack is charged as physical assault. When a weapon is involved, aggravated assault is the most common charge. Sexual assault involves any kind of sexual penetration without legal consent.
