Talk To An Attorney If You Have Been Accused Of Assault

Assault is a serious crime that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony offense. A conviction on even a simple assault charge can leave you with a criminal record that identifies you as a violent person to prospective employers, landlords and others who may have reason to request a background check.

Physical contact is not required for an assault charge. Placing a person in reasonable fear of harm through a verbal threat or aggressive gesture is enough to get you arrested. You should seek the advice of a qualified criminal defense attorney in McKinney or Sherman immediately if you have been charged with assault, no matter how harmless you think the incident may have been.
