can you please tell me what she could be facing if found guilty

Thanks for the update. I would appreciate your removing the negative rating from my previous response at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.According to the Texas Code for assault, aggravated assault is a second degree felony. The punishment range is between 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Aggravated assault is an assault with a deadly weapon, or without a deadly weapon where significant bodily injury occurs.Conspiracy to commit aggravated assault is punishable as a third degree felony. The punishment range is between 2 to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.I hope this answers your question. If so, please rate my response positively and withdraw your previous negative rating. Doing so will NOT cost you any additional fee.Thank you,Shuband
PS: I will be away from my computer until tomorrow morning (Thursday, 4/11/13). If you need additional assistance I will do my best to assist you then.
