Aggravated Sexual Assault Charges Will Follow You

Being accused of aggravated sexual assault can be very isolating, but you are not alone. Many Americans are falsely accused every year for a number of reasons, most often due to divorce, unhappy stepchildren, or simply rumors brought on by a misconstrued glance. You may feel alone, but you need to remember your constitutional rights. Know that what you say can be used against you in a court of law, so you should remain silent without an attorney present.

 

The Texas Penal Code Section 22.021 covers aggravated sexual assault. If a sex offender is convicted of committing aggravated sexual assault against a child below the age of six, the offender faces potential capital punishment or life without parole, depending on the severity of the crime. The offender faces the same punishment if he or she commits aggravated sexual assault against a child under the age of fourteen or if he or she has previously been convicted and spent time in prison for the same violation.

 

If a sex offender is convicted of committing super aggravated sexual abuse, which means there was violence involved, against a child under the age of six years old, then the offender will serve a minimum of 25 years of confinement in prison.
