Penalties for Sexual Assault in Texas
Sexual assault penalties can vary somewhat depending on the exact sex crime committed and the particulars of the situation. Examples of sex crimes are:
These charges are taken very seriously by the state and penalties are severe. If injury or death occurred during or due to the assault, the charges are increased to a first degree felony or become a capital murder offense.
Besides extensive jail time and expensive fines, a conviction for a sex crime may require registration on the sex offender registry.
