Sexual Assault (Rape) In Texas

Sexual assault is a general term that covers a broad range of sexual misconduct commonly referred to as rape. Some allegations that may result in rape charges include:

  • Using physical violence or the threat of violence to force another person into sexual contact
  • Having sex with a person who is not old enough to give consent (sometimes called statutory rape). In Texas, the age of consent is 17.
  • Having sexual relations with a person who is physically or mentally incapable of resisting
  • Using a position of power, such as a doctor, clergy or public servant, to coerce another person into having sexual activity
