Texas Penalties For Violent Crimes
The consequences of a violent crime will vary depending on the severity of the harm sustained by the victim, whether there was a weapon present and the victim’s relationship with the accused. If you already have a criminal record, it could also play a factor in your sentence. In general, a violent crime can be punished by imprisonment, fines, or probation.
