Can I Be Charged with Assault if I Didn't Touch the Victim?

When most people hear the word assault, they associate it with the physical attack of one person by another person. While it is true that when one person deliberately or purposefully causes bodily harm to another person he or she is committing assault, and usually assault & battery, it is not the only way in which a person can commit an assault. If you threaten another person with physical harm or insinuate in some manner that another person's life is in imminent danger, you may also find yourself facing assault charges. In cases where you displayed a firearm or weapon during the assault, you could be facing charges of aggravated assault regardless of whether you actually touched the alleged victim or not.

If you have been accused of committing assault in Texas, or you have been arrested for an alleged assault, you could be facing serious charges upon conviction.
