What Are The Penalties For Violent Crimes in Texas?
In Texas, penalties for violent crimes can vary depending on the specific offense and the circumstances of the case. Generally, violent crimes such as murder, manslaughter, and aggravated assault can result in significant prison time, fines, and other penalties.
Murder, for example, is a capital offense in Texas, which means that it is punishable by death or life in prison without the possibility of parole. Manslaughter, on the other hand, is a first-degree felony and is punishable by 5 to 99 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
Aggravated assault is a second-degree felony, punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
It's important to note that those mentioned above are the general penalties for these crimes, but the actual penalty may vary depending on the circumstances and the offender's criminal history.

"A lot of lawyers write on their websites that they "fight" and that they work "tirelessly" for their clients. The truth is that being a lawyer is more than just fighting or working tirelessly. It's knowing what to do at the right moment to get a fantastic result for a client. I go to trial if I have to. I fight if I have to. But most of the time, my job is to help people who cannot help themselves."
