Domestic violence, serious bodily injury, or just a bar fight…
Many assaults are charged when no injuries exist at all. The other party merely has to say they felt pain. If you take a bad plea deal, these types of cases can haunt you down the road.
Assault-Family Violence is an enhanceable offense. In the state of Texas, your second offense qualifies as a third degree felony. More than one event in a year could qualify you for the Continuing Family Violence statute, which is also a felony. Convictions for family violence can impact your gun rights, create civil and criminal implications when emergency protective orders are issued, and qualify as crimes of moral turpitude for immigration purposes.
You need someone to advise you of the risks. You need someone to defend you who knows the law and enjoys taking cases to trial.
