What Is Considered Sexual Assault of a Minor?

Texas law generally defines child molestation, or sexual assault of a minor as "any harmful sexual conduct to a child's mental, physical or emotional welfare, in addition to failure to make a reasonable effort to prevent sexual conduct with a child, and encouraging or compelling the child to engage in sexual conduct" in Chapter 261 of the Texas Family Code. Also worth noting is that anyone under 17 years of age is considered a child, according to Texas law.

Statute of Limitations Texas Molestation

In Texas, there is no statute of limitations for pursuing charges against an individual for sexual assault of a child or indecency with a child, this includes molestation. This means that at any point in time, you may be convicted and punished. These charges are generally considered first, second, or third degree felonies in the state of Texas and are penalized accordingly. Remember, you have the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty! The prosecution must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you committed the crime. In order to defend your name, clear your reputation, and avoid federal penalties, retain the help of an experienced lawyer.
