Sexual Assault & Texas Law

Definitions

Texas law defines sexual assault as any penetrative sexual contact with another person against their will, or compelling such an activity. Non-consensual contact with the genitals, mouth, anus, or vagina is sufficient to warrant sexual assault charges in Texas.

Texas law defines aggravated sexual assault as sexual assault with the added component of violence, or a threat of violence to compel compliance. Having a weapon present during a sexual assault, but not using it, is grounds for a sexual assault charge to be escalated to that of an aggravated sexual assault.

Aggravated sexual assault charges will also apply if the victim was unconscious for medical reasons or intentionally induced, if the victim was disabled, or if the victim couldn’t have been expected to have any reasonable capacity to defend themselves. Whether the allegations are false or not, this is a serious situation that Attorney Jackson F. Gorski has experience dealing with. If you need to talk with a lawyer about your case, call 512-960-4646 immediately.

Penalties if Convicted

In Texas, sexual assault is classified as a 2nd Degree Felony. Penalties for persons convicted of 2nd Degree Felony sex crime offenses include a prison sentence of up to 20 years, a fine of up to $10,000.00, and a lifetime sex-offender registration requirement.

If the victim was a minor under the age of 14 years of age or if the crime is considered an aggravated offense, the offense will be classified as a 1st Degree Felony sex crime offense and Travis County prosecutors will be allowed to a pursue a conviction which carries a life sentence.

Defense Options

Just because a person claims they were raped should never imply that the accused is guilty, but only that an accusation was made. There have been many cases where false allegations of sexual assault were only aspects of a greater strategy which involved damaging the reputation or credibility of the defendant. This happens all the time in familial disputes, public smearing as is done with politicians and celebrities, and in cases where one person was far-more emotionally vested in a relationship only to find out they were alone, or marginal at best.

Even if there’s no clear evidence of a sexual assault, the Travis County District Attorney might decide to pursue the charge any way. In situations like these, having the right criminal defense lawyer on your side is paramount.
