Plano Sex Crime Attorney
Defending Against Charges of Sexual Assault of a Child
In the state of Texas, criminal charges relating to sex crimes are taken extremely seriously. Due to the long-lasting ramifications suffered from the victim and the stigma that surrounds it, both law enforcement and the courts are ruthless in their efforts to slap the alleged criminals with the harshest penalties possible. This is especially true for sex crime committed against minors such as
child molestation or
sexual assault conducted against a minor.
Legally speaking, sexual assault of a child is the criminal act of intentionally or knowingly forcing sexual conduct with a child. This can be manifested in several different ways, such as by causing penetration or penetrating the mouth of a child by any means or by causing the child to engage in sexual activity. If the child is below the age of fourteen, this is elevated to aggravated sexual assault of a child. Either way, however, this crime is tried as a felony and at the very least, alleged criminals will be at risk of incarceration of more than two years. If charged as aggravated sexual assault, the criminal faces up to 99 years in prison.
