What Types of Penalties Might I Face for Sexual Assault?

If you have a previous sex crime conviction on your record, the penalties for any further conviction will involve much more severe penalties, especially in the case of sexual assault of a child. All cases involving a minor being violated are taken very seriously and will be prosecuted severely. If convicted, the consequences and penalties will depend on the specifics of the crime.

Depending on the severity of the incident, you may be charged with:

  • First-degree felony
  • Second-degree felony
  • Third-degree felony

With each category of charges, the possible prison sentence and fine will differ greatly. While a third-degree felony can carry a prison sentence of up to 10 years, a first-degree felony charge may carry a large fine and a prison sentence of up to life in prison. A conviction will also result in you having to register as a sex offender, which will limit your ability to find housing or gain employment. A knowledgeable attorney in Plano could further explain sexual assault charges and help you build your defense.
