Serious Defense Of Sex Crimes

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. Call 210-446-4090 to get started with a case consult today.

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 crucial witnesses to help you build a strong case.
