As this blog has stated repeatedly, sexual assault crimes are starting
to be prosecuted with more vigor and tenacity. The Texas Legislature has
helped spur this along. The Texas Legislature passed House Bill 3 which
changes the punsihment of repeat offenders of aggravated sexual assault
and sexual assault.
Now, if a person has a previous conviction for aggravated sexual assault
or sexual assault and that person is subsequently convicted of the same
offense then the court shall assess punishment of life-without-
parole. Previously, a repeat offender would be sentenced to life in prison. However,
that offender would eventually become eligible for parole.
If you have been charged with
aggravated sexual assault or
sexual assault, you must contact an experienced and qualified attorney.
