Assault is a broad topic that can refer to conduct which results in one of several degrees of charges. There are five main categories of “Assault”:
Although every case is serious because of the devastating effects it can have on you and your family, assault cases range every where from a Class C misdemeanor to a First Degree Felony. Do not assume that just because no one was hurt that an assault did not occur. The state is not even required to prove injury to successfully prosecute an Aggravated Assault. Likewise, do not assume that just because the “victim” doesn’t want you to be prosecuted that the case will get dismissed. The current state of the politics in Montgomery County has resulted in many cases going to trial where the “victim” does not want the case to continue.

Woodlands Criminal Assault Lawyer
The truth about assault cases is that they are too often prosecuted based on offense reports that are written by police officers who make hasty conclusions without gathering all of the facts of the case. Many times the officer will simply believe whoever called the police first. Especially when family is involved, mere arguments that could be resolved by counseling and time apart often result in an arrest. Many police now take the stance that, if the police are called, someone will be arrested.
