Sexual Assault of a Minor Defense
Skilled Defense Against Serious Sexual Offenses
In the state of Texas, criminal charges relating to
sex crimes are taken extremely seriously. Due to the long-lasting ramifications suffered
from the victim and the stigma that surrounds it, both law enforcement
and the courts are ruthless in their efforts to slap the alleged criminals
with the harshest penalties possible. This is especially true for sex
crime committed against minors such as
child molestation or
sexual assault conducted against a minor.
Sexual assault of a child is the criminal act of intentionally or knowingly
forcing sexual conduct with a child. This can be manifested in several
different ways, such as by causing penetration or penetrating the mouth
of a child by any means or by causing the child to engage in sexual activity.
If the child is below the age of 14, this is elevated to
aggravated sexual assault of a child. Either way, however, this crime is a felony; at the very least,
defendants are at risk of incarceration of 2 or more years. If charged
as aggravated sexual assault, the criminal faces up to 99 years in prison.
