A conviction for a violent crime can have devastating and lifelong consequences. A conviction can prevent you from renting an apartment, being selected for employment, obtaining car insurance or owning a gun.

Examples of Assault & Domestic Violence Crimes
Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon
Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a felony, and in the state of Texas the penalty for this conviction can be severe. If you are not a U.S. citizen a charge such as this can lead to deportation or the denial of citizenship. In addition, you could face jail or prison and be barred from ever owning a firearm.
Felony Assault of a Family Member
Assault to a family member can easily go from being a one time charge and a misdemeanor to a felony, if there is a second offense. Often times a small family dispute can turn into a serious matter when the police are called, depending on prior circumstances. Without a good Houston criminal defense lawyer it is difficult to get a charge of assault on a family member dismissed. These felony charges can lead to jail, time in prison, and potentially the loss of all rights to your children and the right to be around certain family members.
Sexual assault is a violent crime, and unfortunately the United States has the highest rape rate of any industrialized nation. Rape remains the silent sex crime because of the doubt that victims are telling the truth about their experiences, this causes others to keep it to themselves instead of reporting it. Every year in Texas alone, more than 226,000 children and 104,000 adults are raped.
