Q What is considered a Deadly Weapon in Texas?
In Texas for criminal law purposes a deadly weapon means a firearm or anything designed made or adapted for the purpose of inflicting death or serious bodily injury or anything that in the manner of its use or intended use is capable of causing death or serious bodily injury. As you can see from this definition almost anything could hypothetically be stretched to fit within that definition.
If you have been charged with a crime involving a deadly weapon in Houston, Galveston, Fort Bend, Brazoria County, or Montgomery County you need an experienced criminal defense attorney. Crimes where the state alleges a deadly weapon are always serious offenses and if the court makes an affirmative deadly weapon finding it can have long ranging consequences.
Our practice is divided between criminal defense work and parole work and in the context of parole a deadly weapon finding can have a large impact. If you have any questions please call us at 713-651-1444 or fill out an online contact form for a free consultation.
