While there are many forms of sexual assault in the Texas statutes, and many nuances to defining the crime, it generally involves sexual activity against the victim’s will. These obviously serious charges are extremely difficult to fight.

Sexual assault can become elevated to an aggravated assault charge if, in the commission of the crime, the perpetrator:

  • Causes serious bodily injury
  • Attempts to cause the death of the victim or another person in the
    course of the same criminal episode
  • Places the victim in fear of death, serious bodily injury or kidnapping
  • Threatens, through words or action, to cause the death, serious bodily injury or kidnapping of any person
  • Uses or exhibits a deadly weapon
  • Acts in concert with another
  • Or uses a controlled substance

Another common way for assault charges to be enhanced to aggravated sexual assault is if the victim is under 14 years old, more than 65 years old or disabled.
