Building a Strong Defense

Texas is unique in its lower age of consent, but that rule stops at the age of 14. Those within three years of that age can engage in sexual conduct without facing statutory rape consequences. A 17-year-old can legally have consensual sex with a 14-year-old but older than 17 would be considered a sex crime. This window of three years can apply to older individuals as well, meaning a 19-year-old can legally have sex with a 16-year-old without criminal consequences.

Some clients are charged with statutory rape because they engaged in sex with someone they did not know was under the age of 17. This is not a valid defense. Whether you were lied to or you were shown a fake ID, you can still be charged with statutory rape for engaging in sex with someone under 17.
