In Texas, aggravated assault is a serious felony which can result in serious jail time. Aggravated assault charges frequently result from situations in which it is alleged that you used a weapon to assault another, threatened the use of a weapon to assault someone, or caused someone serious bodily injury during the course of an assault. If you’re convicted of aggravated assault, you could end up in the state penitentiary, and receive a fine of up to $10,000. In some cases, you can be charged with a 2nd degree felony, for which the range of punishment includes a term in prison of not less
than two years, nor more than twenty years. In more serious cases of aggravated assault, you can be charged with a 1st degree felony, and face a minimum of five years in prison. You could even get life behind bars.
