Sexual Assault Penalties in Texas

Texas takes criminal justice seriously pretty much across the board, but
the Lone Star State is particularly aggressive when it comes to sex crimes.
It’s not uncommon for prosecutors to push for the maximum possible
penalties, and defendants may face everything from steep fines (up to
$10,000) to long prison sentences (up to 20 years) plus mandatory sex
offender registration for life.

Those found guilty of sex offenses often face additional non-legal penalties
as well, including reduced employment opportunities, difficulty finding
a place to live, and ostracization from social groups including friends
and family.

Aggravated Sexual Assault in Texas

Aggravated sexual assault is sexual assault where other special circumstances
exist that increase the severity of the crime. Whereas sexual assault
is a second-degree felony, aggravated sexual assault is a first-degree
felony and carries even harsher penalties. In fact, in particularly extreme
circumstances, the penalties for these types of sexual assault crimes
can start with a minimum 25 year prison sentence!

What Qualifies as Aggravated Sexual Assault?

  • Using violence, threats of violence, or a deadly weapon while committing the crime
  • Using a “date rape” drug
  • If the victim is a disabled or elderly person
  • If the victim is under the age of 14
  • Collaborating with someone else to facilitate the crime

Texas Super Aggravated & Continuous Sexual Assault

While aggravated sexual assault is a harsh felony charge in Texas, the
state actually can elevate it further with its penal codes describing
“super aggravated sexual assault of a child” and “continuous
sexual assault of a child.”

  • Super aggravated sexual assault of a child occurs when someone commits aggravated sexual assault on a child under
    the age of 6. The charge can also be filed against someone previously
    convicted of a violent sex crime against a minor under the age of 14 recommits
    the same or similar criminal violation.
  • Continuous sexual assault of a child occurs when someone is alleged to have committed sexual assault against
    one or more children under the age of 14 across at least two instances
    that were separated by at least 30 days.

Protect Your Future Freedoms Right Now!

Both super aggravated and continuous sexual assault charges are first degree
felonies in Texas that can be heavily penalized. On a first-time conviction,
the sentencing penalties can include a minimum sentence of 25 years imprisonment with a maximum of 99 years, as well as thousands of dollars in fines and
a lifetime placement on sexual offender registries.

Whether you’re facing simple sexual assault charges or you’ve
been accused of an extremely serious aggravated sexual assault charge,
you can’t afford to try and face your charges alone. Without experience
and legal knowledge on your side, you’re setting yourself up to
fail and face the full force of the criminal justice system. Make sure
