If you have been accused of a sex crime, it is imperative that you have a knowledgeable criminal defense team at your side to help prepare you for trial.

Sexual assault, or sexual abuse, is considered by a wide majority of the population to be a particularly heinous and violent crime, and if you are facing conviction, there is nowhere to run.

 

Sexual assault differs from aggravated sexual assault, but both charges can incur severe penalties. Being convicted of any sex crime is extremely taboo and completely ruins your reputation. These charges affect not only you, but also anyone surrounding you in your life. Your entire family can be dragged into the legal proceedings, not to mention your career and any future financial endeavors, including homeownership. You may even be required to register as a sex offender. Don’t let this happen to you!

Sexual Assault Charges Can Haunt You

If you have been accused of sexual assault, you need to remember that you are not alone. Many Americans face sex crime allegations every year for a wide variety of reasons, including a divorce, a stepchild seeking revenge or attention, or even just gossip provoked by foolhardy judgment. No matter how you are feeling, you must remember your constitutional rights; what you say can and will be used against you by authorities, so you need to keep your mouth shut without a lawyer present.

 

The Texas Penal code covers sexual assault in Section 22.011 and aggravated sexual assault in Section 22.021. If a sex offender is convicted of committing sexual assault, it is considered a felony of the second degree. This can mean anywhere between two and 20 years in prison, potentially accompanied by a fine of no more than $10,000. That is a long time to spend behind bars, and “I did not know he/she was underage” will not cut it as an excuse.
