What is a simple assault in Texas?

Simple assault is one of the less severe assault charges in Texas. Still, it is important to take the allegations seriously. A simple assault occurs when physical contact with another causes no pain in a situation where the person knows, or should reasonably believe, that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative. Depending on circumstances, an assault may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony.

  • Class A misdemeanor, up to 1 year in jail, $4,000 fine
  • Third degree felony, 2-10 years in prison, up to $10,000 fine

An assault conviction not only comes with fines and the possibility of jail, but it also goes on your criminal record and will show up on CORI and other types of background checks. That means that when applying for professional licenses, some jobs, loans, and apartments, the assault conviction will be a factor in determining whether you are successful.
