Battery Charges in Texas
What is the difference between battery and assault?
Battery is a distinct charge that stands separate from assault, but it is often charged in conjunction with assault. You can be charged with battery if you cause actual physical harm or contact to an individual even if no threats were made. If you were arrested for battery, then you need to contact the Law Office of Steven Rocket Rosen right away and retain the legal counsel of a trusted criminal defense attorney in Fort Bend.
Under Texas law, there are a few types of battery charges that can brought against another person, usually stemming from an incident that involved physical injury; however, battery can also be a simple case of unwanted physical contact with an individual, such as sexual battery or groping. Battery charges can be both misdemeanors, such as when charged as simple battery, or felonies. If a weapon was used in the crime, then you may risk having your charges escalated and face penalties such as life in prison and hefty fines. After an arrest, your future is on the line, and you need to contact my firm immediately.
