Sexual Assault

What is Sexual Assault?

In Texas, the crime of sexual assault involves the penetration of the anus, sexual organ or mouth without the consent of the other person.

There are other variations of this crime. An individual may be charged with aggravated assault if certain aggravating factors are present; if the victim is under the age of 14; if a deadly weapon was used during the crime; if serious bodily injury resulted; and other factors.

No matter what the details, it is important to know that sexual assault is a very serious crime. It is a second-degree felony that carries significant penalties, including fines, probation, prison time and mandatory sex offender registration.
