What Is Sexual Assault? What Are The Penalties If I Am Convicted?

Texas Penal Code 22.011 defines sexual assault as any contact with or penetration of a sexual organ of another person without that person's consent. If the person is younger than 17, it is more commonly called statutory rape.

Aggravated sexual assault happens under violent circumstances or coercive methods, commonly involving a weapon, threat or an extremely vulnerable victim like a child or elderly person.

As with all Texas sex offenses, sexual assault is a felony charge and a conviction results in mandatory jail time, as well as mandatory sex offender registration. Aggravated sexual assault, in particular, is a first-degree felony charge with a minimum sentence of five years in prison.
