Denton Assault Lawyer

Some people have problems dealing with their anger. In some ways, anger is a natural response that helps separate right from wrong. However, anger can sometimes lead people to say and do things they would not have otherwise said or done. For example, making direct threats or physically harming another human can result in assault and battery charges.

If you are facing assault charges, contact the Denton assault attorneys of Alexander & Associates today by calling 972-420-6560. Let our experience handling criminal cases serve you during this difficult time.

Assault and Battery Charges

Assault and battery charges vary in detail between jurisdictions, but threatening another person’s health and safety or taking violent action against another person is punishable by law. Depending on the intent of the threat, the circumstances of the altercation, and even the intent of the attack, the following charges can be pressed:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Aggravated Battery

The general rule of the law is that assault constitutes a threat against a person, which could become aggravated assault if there are sufficient means to back up those threats with a deadly weapon. Battery, on the other hand, can be defined as illegal, nonconsensual contact between people. Considering that battery is often preceded by assault, these charges are occasionally combined to be called assault charges, simplifying any legal distinctions.
