Penalties of Domestic Abuse in Texas

A domestic abuse case is rare in that police officers have the right to arrest you at the scene based on probable cause alone. He or she does not actually have to witness the action but can instead use a witness or any evidence of injury. This can quickly lead to domestic abuse charges placed against you.

The penalties for a domestic abuse conviction in Texas are:

  • Simple assault – class A misdemeanor that can put you in jail for up to a year
  • Multiple convictions – third-degree felony that could result in 2 to 10 years in prison
  • Aggravated abuse – second-degree felony with 2 to 20 years in state prison
  • Abuse with a weapon – first-degree felony with up to life in prison

If you are charged with domestic abuse, it does not automatically mean you are guilty. Many cases are built around accusations from the supposed victim and do not have any evidence.
