Assault crimes often take many forms and result in different penalties depending on the individual circumstances. For example, offensive touching but no resulting injury is classified as a misdemeanor. You may be sentenced to probation and end up paying a small fine.

For other more serious assault crimes, you may be charged with a felony. This typically involves lengthy probation or time in prison, up to and including a life sentence. Assault crimes are serious and require an experienced criminal defense lawyer in Austin, Texas, like Eric Harron.

Texas law is quite clear. DWI is a legal distinction that means a person is operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. This covers drugs, alcohol, and other intoxicants.

Depending on specific factors, you can face various charges when arrested. For example, if you’ve been arrested with a DWI for the first time, you usually face a class B misdemeanor. However, if you’ve been arrested multiple times, you could face a felony conviction.

Texas drug crimes range from minor charges like possession to more serious crimes of manufacture or delivery. When you face a criminal conviction, choose a criminal defense lawyer in central Texas known for taking aggression action, knowledge, and experience.

Sometimes, an expunction is needed when, after being charged with a criminal office, you want that arrest record removed from your record. An expunction can be a tricky legal process but, in some cases, will destroy the arrest, charge, and/or seal conviction from state records.

Generally speaking, assault laws apply to anyone. This includes strangers in a bar as well as partners in the home. Specific family violence laws that apply to assaults in the home come with harsher penalties. They cover family members like a spouse, parent, or child.

Charges that come from a fight or threats of violence between roommates who aren’t related can also be classified as family violence.

Two different types of laws protect animals from cruelty in Texas. These are civil and criminal laws. While the penalties they impose are different, both laws are similar.

If you’re charged in a criminal case, you can face punishment like fines, jail, probation, or community service. If you’re dealing with civil proceedings and a judge finds that you have been cruel to animals, you may lose the right to own animals as well as pay money for restitution.

Juveniles may be required to undergo licensed mental health counseling as well.

Sex crimes under state law cover a lot of offenses. If you’re convicted, punishment includes registering with the Texas Sex Offender Registration Program. This designation could have a lasting effect on your life, career possibilities, and reputation.

You should hire a criminal defense lawyer in Austin who can defend you the moment you’re investigated or arrested for sexual assault/indecency with a child.

In Texas, the penal code contains many differentiations of criminal theft. It’s usually defined as the unlawful appropriation of someone else’s belongings.

This includes more traditional methods such as stealing, shoplifting, or dealing in stolen goods. Especially if you knew or had reason to know the goods were stolen. How the crime is classified also depends on the stolen item itself, its value, and how many prior offenses you’ve had.


In DWI and criminal defense cases, you need someone who frequently takes those cases to trial and has a good reputation with prosecutors and judges. Eric Harron is the experienced DWI lawyer who believes in you and will fight for your rights. Many of his DWI cases have ended with a reduced charge, sometimes expunging the arrest entirely.

Eric has also successfully defended numerous criminal defense cases resulting in “not guilty” verdicts or with charges being dismissed. He’s handled all types of cases ranging from misdemeanors to complex criminal charges.
