Plano Criminal Defense Attorney Helping Individuals Accused of Aggravated Assault
In Texas, there is a fine line between offenses charged as sexual assault
and offenses charged as aggravated sexual assault. While both categories
of sex offenses can result in lifetime damage to your reputation, sex
offender registration and serious criminal penalties, the terms of imprisonment
are dramatically more severe for individuals convicted of aggravated sexual
assault in Texas. Having an experienced and relentless criminal defense
lawyer is critical to the outcome of your case when you are facing such
serious sex crime charges.
At the Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Grass, we recognize that there are two
sides to every story. Although the police, prosecution and media often
find a person guilty before trial has ever commenced, we believe everyone
deserves experienced defense counsel in a court of law.
A Closer Look at Aggravated Sexual Assault Laws in Texas
Under Texas law, sexual assault is classified as a second-degree felony.
A conviction for sexual assault can result in a mandatory prison sentence
of two to 20 years. However, aggravated sexual assault is classified as
a first-degree felony and can result in an increased mandatory prison
sentence of five years to life. When your future is on the line, this
is a significant difference.
Many factors can cause an incident to be charged as aggravated sexual assault, such as:
- Sexual assault resulting in serious bodily injury or death
- Coerced sexual conduct (involving threats of death, kidnapping or serious
injury on another person)
- Sexual assault involving the use of a deadly weapon
- Sexual assault involving the use of date rape drugs
- Sexual assault of a child under the age of 14
- Sexual assault of an elderly or disabled individual
