Texas Legal Code Regarding Sexual Offenses
In Texas, many sexual offenses are covered under Sections 21 and 22 of the Texas Penal Code, some of which include the following:
- Public Lewdness
- Indecent Exposure
- Indecency With a Child
- Improper Photography or Visual Recording
- Improper Relationship Between Educator and Student
- Sexual Assault
- Aggravated Sexual Assault
The sentencing and penalties for a sex offense in Texas vary widely depending upon the nature of the offense and if a child victim was involved. For example, indecent exposure is prosecuted as a Class B misdemeanor, whereas aggravated sexual assault, which includes rape, is a felony of the first degree, punishable by 5 to 99 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
In contrast, a Class B misdemeanor may involve a maximum of 180 days confinement or a fine not to exceed $2,000, or both.
In Texas, many convictions for sex crimes carry mandatory sex offender registration. Just a few offenses that require sex offender registration include indecency with a child, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault etc. Not only does being a registered sex offender carry a major social stigma, but it can have serious implications that would affect housing and employment opportunities for years to come.
