Sexual assault is defined by Section 22.011 of the Texas Penal Code (Title
5) as any sexual penetration without consent. It is among the most serious
criminal violations in the state. If the alleged victim was kidnapped,
seriously injured, or threatened with a deadly weapon, the charge can
be elevated to aggravated sexual assault. This heightened charge can also
be applied if the other party was elderly, disabled, younger than 14 years
old, or administered a "date rape drug" prior to the assault.
If you've been arrested for a sex crime, you need serious defense.

Can I claim consent as a defense?
By statute, there are numerous conditions that must be met for consent
to be legally established. Consent
cannot be legally established if participation in the sex act was compelled by
force or violence, made possible by a physical or mental inability to
resist, or was carried out by someone in a position of direct authority.
This can include government officials, health care providers, or clergymen.
Speak with our San Antonio sex crime lawyer to see if consent is a viable
defense for your case. We can launch our own investigations and interview
