What Defines Child Sexual Assault?

Child sexual assault is typically referred to as “child molestation” under Texas law, which is defined as any sexual contact, indecency, or abuse of an individual under the age of 17 by an individual aged 18 or older. As a result, nearly any sex crime involving a child can automatically be charged as sexual assault, including indecent exposure, lewd conduct, and more.

Penalties for Child Sexual Assault

The nature of your case will depend on the actions that took place. Sex crimes involving children are always prosecuted as a felony, which means you could face penalties for the rest of your life, even after your sentence is completed.

Child sexual assault penalties can include:

  • Prison time (including life sentences in severe cases)
  • Large fines (up to $10,000)
  • Permanent criminal record (not eligible for expungement or sealing)
  • Victim restitution
  • Mandatory sex offender registration

Sex offender registration means you will be required to register your information into the publicly available database of registered sex offenders every year. This also prohibits you from living in certain areas (such as those close to schools), or seek certain employment positions, including those in federal institutions involving children.

These cases also frequently carry a heavy social stigma. Those accused often have an extraordinarily difficult time restoring their name, even after they are proven guilty, because so many people immediately side with the alleged victim. It’s not uncommon for evidence in these cases to be highly controversial, which means you should not attempt to navigate your case without assistance from a knowledgeable and prepared legal representative.
