Title 5 of the Texas Penal Code defines a wide range of crimes against persons and includes crimes such as Murder, Aggravated Assault, Assault, Terroristic Threat, and Deadly Conduct. These crimes carry a range of punishment from a fine only for a threat of imminent bodily injury to life in prison for murder. When there are allegations of a deadly weapon being used or exhibited or causing another serious bodily injury, the accused can face having to serve 50% of their prison sentence before being eligible for parole and the possibility of not having probation as a punishment option if convicted.

These cases can be complex and the stakes high. Edward has extensive trial experience with violent offenses. Call 361-489-3414 today for a free consultation.
