According to section 21.02 of the Texas Penal Code, a person commits the offense of continuous sexual assault of a child if:
- during a period that is 30 or more days in duration, the person commits two or more acts of sexual abuse, regardless of whether the acts of sexual abuse are committed against one or more victims; and
- at the time of the commission of each of the acts of sexual abuse, the actor is 17 years of age or older, and the victim is a child younger than 14 years of age.
Continuous sexual assault of a child is a severe offense, and if proven guilty, the penalty can be between 25 years and life in prison without the possibility of parole. In addition, if and when a person is released from jail, they would have to register as a sex offender for life. There is no question that this charge is the most dangerous and life-altering moment in an individual’s life.
