Question: What are the penalties for sexual assault in Texas?
In Texas, it’s really important to know that sexual assault is one of the most serious crimes. One of the reasons is because if you’re convicted of this offense, you’ll have to report as a sex offender for your whole life. Very often, these cases are defendable because it’s an issue of consent.
It’s really important to talk to a lawyer first. Some people are under the misconception that intoxication is a defense. If you go talk to an officer and say, “Well, I was intoxicated; both of us were intoxicated,” that’s not a defense. You have to be careful when you talk to somebody about this offense, and it’s advisable not to talk to anybody about it until you talk to a lawyer.

Successful Case Defending Indecent Exposure
Jonathan G. – The defendant was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. If found guilty the Defendant would be sentenced to prison and lifetime registration as a sex offender. Any plea to aggravated sexual assault, if offered, would require lifetime registration as a sex offender. During the pretrial phase we provided the prosecution with psychological and sex offender evaluations which were beneficial to our client. Ultimately the case was reduced to injury to a child and the defendant was given deferred adjudication, thereby avoiding a conviction and lifetime registration as a sex offender.
