Austin, Travis County: Assault Family Violence

Posted By on May 23, 2017

Assault-Family Violence is one of the most common criminal cases in Travis County. In the last 3+ years there have been 7486 such cases.

Out of those, nearly half – 3551 – have been dismissed. Another 1621 are still pending. 961 are shown as “Final Dispositions” – probation or jail time.

Those three categories – dismissed, active, and final – make up most of the cases: 6133 out of 7486. The others go into categories such as “Prosecution Rejected” (182), “Warrant Issued” (165), and “Transferred”.

The disposition of any case depends on the facts in that particular case. However, it’s clear that for those charged with Assault-Family Violence, a dismissal is more likely than a conviction.
