Domestic Abuse

Every year Texas police respond to thousands of reported domestic disturbances. These disturbances occur in a number of different ways and involve a wide number of factors. Although it is often treated as a simple issue, domestic violence is actually a very complex legal issue.

Domestic abuse is a serious charge that has severe penalties under the law. If you or someone you love has been charged with this crime, it is imperative that you seek legal representation right away. To learn more about abuse charges and how an attorney can help defend your freedom, please contact Austin criminal defense attorney Ian Inglis today by calling (512) 472-1950.

What Is Domestic Assault?

The following three provisions must occur if a crime is considered "domestic assault":

  • Intentionally or recklessly causing bodily harm to someone else
  • Knowingly or intentionally threatening someone else with imminent injury to his or her body
  • Intentionally or knowingly causing physical contact with another individual when that person knows or reasonably believes that the other will consider the contact as offensive or provocative

If you are charged with a first-degree or second-degree felony, you could face high-cost penalties or even jail time. Because of these consequences, you may want to consider hiring an experienced Austin defense attorney to represent you. That way, you can be confident in knowing your case is capable hands.
