Domestic Assault in Texas

In Texas, domestic violence is known as domestic assault. Prosecutors must prove that either the violence was committed intentionally or that there was an intentional threat of violence. A more serious form of domestic violence is called aggravated domestic assault. This may be charged if the alleged victim has sustained serious bodily injury.

The following are elements of domestic assault:

  • Intentionally causing physical harm to another person
  • Intentionally threatening to harm another person
  • Intentionally making physical contact with another person, knowing that that individual will find the act offensive

These are the elements of aggravated domestic assault:

  • Intentionally causing serious bodily injury to another person
  • Using a deadly weapon while committing assault on another person

Furthermore, family members of the defendant may ask the courts to issue a restraining order, forcing the defendant to maintain a certain distance away from the family and refrain from speaking with them. Because the consequences can be immense, you should immediately talk to a Plano domestic violence lawyer.
