Understanding Texas Sex Crime Laws and Charges

  • Rape - Rape is considered a violent crime that will be charged as a felony. If convicted, you could face maximum penalties, including life in prison. If you have been arrested for statutory rape or raping a minor, you need to contact a sex crime attorney immediately.
  • Child Pornography- Possessing, distributing, viewing, or requesting and manufacturing child pornography is strictly forbidden by law. If arrested on child pornography charges, you could be penalized with life in prison and major fines.
  • Child Abuse - Child sexual abuse is a form of molestation in which the alleged perpetrator acts in a manner or engages in sexual contact with a child to stimulate one's sexual desires. Those accused of this crime will face biased judgments from the public and possibly the jury.
  • Internet Sex Crimes - Any type of internet crime, including sexual advancements, exchanging photos or sexually graphic material, child pornography, or asking for services (regardless of outcome), is considered a sex crime.
  • Indecency with a Minor - Any type of sexual contact, interaction, or exposure with a child or minor under 17 can land a person with a charge of indecency with a child.
  • Sexual Assault Defense - Any unwanted advancement or touching of a victim through force, fear, or incoherency is defined as sexual assault. This is an aggravated offense that is heavily prosecuted.

What are the Penalties For Sex Crimes in Texas

Texas State legislation is not forgiving toward those convicted of sex crimes. Regardless of the evidence present or your criminal history, if you are convicted of a sex crime of any kind, you could be facing some of the harshest criminal penalties in use. Some punishments will target your pocketbook and others your time, but the most damaging of all penalties will affect your reputation and good name. If you are charged with a sex crime in Texas, you must react fast to protect yourself with a trusted Fort Bend County criminal defense attorney.

The three top forms of criminal penalty sex crime convicts face are:

  • Prison time: Many sex crimes are charged as felonies, not misdemeanors, so any time spent behind bars may be done in a state or federal prison for at least one year. In addition to losing your freedom, incarceration can subject you to the notorious dangers of prison life.
