Defense of Domestic Violence and Assault Charges
There's a big difference between a misdemeanor charge of simple assault and one of assault/family violence as defined under Texas law. Conviction of the domestic violence charge will cost your gun ownership rights, expose you to future risk of a contempt citation if you violate an order for protection, and set you up for felony prosecution if you're arrested again for domestic violence.
