Texas Intoxication Assault Cases

Your intoxication level in this type of case will be determined by your blood alcohol content (BAC). If your BAC exceeds the legal limit of .08 percent, you are considered impaired. You can also be arrested and charged for intoxication assault while operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs.

An intoxication assault is charged as a third-degree felony. A conviction occurs by proving that your intoxication led to actions that caused another person serious bodily injuries. These are injuries that cause permanent damage, disfigurement, or loss of life.

Penalties for Intoxication Assault

The penalties for an intoxication assault conviction include:

  • Two to 10 years of imprisonment
  • A fine of $10,000
  • Both a fine and prison sentence

In cases where the assault was committed against a firefighter, policeman, or an emergency medical technician, it may result in second-degree felony charges punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

      Our client, a retired Marine, was out with some friends one night when he got into a fight at a gas station. He allegedly pulled out a knife and left the scene.
