Aggravated assault is a serious crime. This is a very stripped down primer on the charge in Texas. I'm a little surprised they didn't tack on "with a deadly weapon". He's very lucky.

Perhaps instead of planning to buy him packages you could use that money to find a better living situation or prepare for employment. Those things will carry you, or the both of you, much farther than ramen and deodorant.
I've already read that, and I am preparing for finding a job and looking for a better place to live, I've stated that in other posts (not to sound snippy), but I can set aside some money to send him a com. package, cause even when he IS out even if he's bonded out, I'm gonna keep saving money while staying at my friends for a deposit, first month's rent and utilities if need be and at least half next month's rent. Cause they're not asking much from me here for rent, like 150/mo. not bad. I'm basically paying my share of utilities. I'm not complaining, but I do know I need to get a job and a better place for us, and he's NOT gonna like hearing that I'm doing that and not bonding him out.
