Defining Sexual Assault

Sexual assault encompasses non-consensual sexual contact or behavior, including but not limited to unwanted touching, coercion, and penetration. It's a violation of an individual's bodily autonomy and can have severe psychological, emotional, and physical consequences.

Types of sexual assaults include:
Rape: Involves forced sexual intercourse or penetration without consent.
Sexual Battery: Involves unwanted and non-consensual sexual touching or contact.
Sexual Coercion: Involves manipulating or coercing someone into sexual activity against their will.
Statutory Rape: It includes any sexual activity with a minor, whether or not the minor consents.

The Sexual Assault Statute of Limitations in Texas

An individual can file for sexual assault charges within 10 years from the date of the offense. However, there are exceptions to this timeline, such as cases involving DNA evidence or if the accused leaves the state after the offense.

Penalties for Sexual Assault in Texas

In Texas, the penalties for sexual assault convictions are severe. They vary based on the specific circumstances of the case and can range from many years in prison to lifetime registration as a sex offender. The severity of the penalties often depends on factors such as the age of the victim, the use of force, and the relationship between the accused and the victim.

The penalties for sexual assault convictions may be as follows depending on the individual case:
First-Degree Felony: In cases involving rape or assault resulting in severe bodily injury, the penalty can be 5 to 99 years in prison with fines up to $10,000.
Second-Degree Felony: Sexual assaults involving threats, use of force, or when the victim is incapacitated can result in 2 to 20 years imprisonment with fines up to $10,000.
Third-Degree Felony: Cases involving non-consensual sexual contact may result in 2 to 10 years in prison with fines up to $10,000.

Defense Strategies for Sexual Assault Charges

A criminal defense lawyer employs various defense strategies to build a strong case. Each case is unique, and a defense strategy is tailored to the specifics of the situation. Some effective approaches might include:
Challenging Evidence: Scrutinizing the evidence against the accused and raising doubts about its validity or reliability.
Consent and Circumstances: Asserting that the sexual encounter was consensual or disputing the circumstances surrounding the alleged assault.
Witness Credibility: Questioning the credibility or reliability of witness statements to cast doubt on the prosecution's case.
Alibi Evidence: Presenting alibi evidence to demonstrate the accused's absence from the scene or inability to commit the alleged offense.
Mental State or Intoxication: Exploring the mental state of the accused or any intoxication that could affect their ability to understand or engage in the alleged act.
Questioning Chain of Custody: Challenging the chain of custody of evidence to question its integrity or authenticity.
Our team stands by you while helping you navigate the legal system, ensuring your voice is heard. We can craft a defense that aims for the most favorable resolution possible.
