Defending Against Intoxication Assault Charges

As a third-degree felony in this state, intoxication assault charges are likely to be aggressively pursued by Houston prosecutors who will be looking to achieve a conviction. With that in mind, you need to contact and retain an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you are arrested and charged with this offense. With the help of a good criminal defense attorney you will be better equipped to protect your rights and to develop a legal strategy in order to best defend your future.

Possible Penalties for Intoxication Assault

Drunk driving offenses are particularly stigmatized across the country and, as a result, the penalties typically handed out for third-degree felony intoxication assault convictions in Texas are particularly harsh, possibly including:

  • Anywhere from 2 to 10 years in prison
  • Probation and up to 30 days in county jail
  • Anywhere from 160 to 600 hours of community service in conjunction with probation
  • Up to $10,000 in fines

Our Houston legal team is committed to protecting your rights and defending your future from any of the possible consequences of an intoxication assault conviction.
