Fort Bend County Statutory Rape Lawyer

Sexual Conduct with a Child Under 17 Years Old

In the state of Texas, it is illegal to have sexual intercourse with someone who is younger than 17 years old. This offense is known as "statutory rape." Anyone who is younger than 17 years old is not considered to be capable of giving legal consent for sex, which means that anyone who has intercourse with someone who is 16 or younger can be charged with a sex crime.

At theLaw Office of Steven Rocket Rosen, our team understands the serious nature of your charges. Our firm can provide the urgent attention and aggressive defense that you need in order to avoid a conviction. Statutory rape is charged as "sexual assault" under Texas Penal Code § 22.011, or "aggravated sexual assault" under Tex. Pen. Code § 22.021 if the child suffered bodily injury or death.

Texas Penalties for Statutory Rape

Statutory rape can be charged as either a second-degree felony or a first-degree felony. If charged as a felony in the second degree, statutory rape will incur a fine of up to $10,000, 2 – 20 years in prison, or both. If charged as a felony in the first degree, statutory rape will result in a fine of up to $10,000, a prison sentence of 5 – 99 years, or both. If the child was under 6 years old, or was younger than 14 and suffered serious bodily injury, then the minimum prison sentence is 25 years.
