Fort Bend County Assault Family Violence Attorney James Sullivan Can Defend You

Richmond, Texas Criminal Attorney James Sullivan


Most couples learn to resolve their differences or even end their relationships without resorting to violence.  Sometimes, however, even good people gets so stressed out and feel so overwhelmed that they lose it even for a moment and strike out at their partner in a physical way.

Depending on the nature of the violent act, the prosecutors can charge it either as a misdemeanor or a felony.  A class A misdemeanor assault means that one person caused bodily injury (or pain) to their partner.  If the person used a deadly weapon, then it is a felony assault.  If the person choked their partner or restricted their breathing, then it is also a felony.  No matter the level of the criminal offense charged, you can expect the court to order you out of your home and have no contact until the case is resolved with your partner or spouse.
