Assault can range from a Class C Assault, for the most minor cases, all the way up to Felony Assaults, Aggravated Assault, and Assaults with Bodily Injury.
Due to the vast nature and diversity of assault cases, the punishment for Assault depends on the classification of the Charge. For Misdemeanors, Assault can be punishable by either a fine for Class C Misdemeanor Assault, to County Jail for Class A Misdemeanor and Misdemeanor B Assaults. Felony Assaults are more serious, with potential State Jail or Prison.
Common Assault cases typically include fights at schools, colleges, or fights with weapons, and even gang assaults.
Some of the more common defenses to assaultive conduct includes consent (Sec. 22.06) and self-defense.
