Proving innocence in assault cases can be done

Texas takes a dim view of assault cases and is famously tough on those who commit assault. For that reason, anyone who is accused of assault in Texas should take it very seriously. There may be circumstances where a lawyer may be able to credibly argue against a conviction and prevent or moderate the legal consequences for the defendant they represent. Of course, even more importantly, the defendant may not be guilty, and may need that proven by their lawyer in a court of law.

Assault charge involves opposite contentions

In an assault case, multiple things need to be determined. Those include exactly what happened, what fault there was and what mitigating circumstances, if any, there were. All of those will undoubtedly be looked at in regard to a current Texas case in which a police officer is being charged with aggravated assault by a public servant, which is a first-degree felony.
