WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT / RAPE?

In Texas, sexual assault is defined as any unwanted, non-consensual sexual contact or penetration against another person with the threat or use of violence or physical force. Rape is classified as a second-degree felony, punishable by a prison sentence ranging from two to 20 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

There are several circumstances that may elevate the rape charge to an aggravated sexual assault charge. Aggravated sexual assault is a first-degree felony, resulting in a lifetime prison sentence or a prison sentence between five and 99 years.

The following are the aggravating circumstances of a rape charge:

  • Defendant used the “date rape drug”
  • Defendant acted with another individual in the commission of the crime
  • Victim is younger than 14 years of age
  • Victim is an elderly or disabled individual
  • Defendant caused serious injury or attempted to fatally injure the victim
  • Defendant used a deadly weapon in the commission of the crime
  • Defendant placed the victim in fear of death, serious injury, or kidnapping
