Penalties for Sexual Assault in Dallas, TX

Sexual assault is a felony offense in Texas. If convicted, defendants face incarceration, steep fines and are required to register as a sex offender. Even after your sentence is over, being included in the sex offender registry will affect where you can live and the types of jobs you can hold.

 

Texas Penal Code Chapter 22, Section 22.011 defines sexual assault as any non-consensual sexual contact against another person involving penetration. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the alleged sex crime, sexual assault can be charged as a first or a second degree felony. Penalties for sex offenses in Texas are severe. The majority of sexual assault convictions are punishable by 2-20 year prison terms.

 

Penalties increase dramatically in convictions of aggravated sexual assault, which may involve any one of the following elements:

  • Sexual assault on a minor
  • Sex crimes against a person with disabilities
  • Use of a “date rape” drug
  • Use or display of a deadly weapon
  • Assault that causes serious bodily injury
  • Threats of violence or death
  • Threats of imminent kidnapping

 

Those who are convicted of aggravated sexual assault in Texas can be put behind bars for decades. Prison sentences can range from5 years to life, but if the victim was a minor and subjected to physical violence, the minimum jail term is 25 years.
