A domestic violence or assault allegation can tarnish an individual’s reputation in the community.
In Texas, domestic violence assault causing minor injury is a class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in county jail and a $4,000 fine. It is crucial to get an attorney in the early stages of these kinds of cases in order to obtain the best results. Even if the alleged victim does not want to press charges, the district attorney’s office can still proceed with the case as they see fit.
Being convicted of a crime that has a family violence finding such as a domestic violence assault charge in Texas, can have dire consequences for the accused.
In Texas, a family violence finding is not eligible for non-disclosure and will stay on your record forever. Additionally a family violence finding will make it impossible to obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun license.
