  • Rape
  • Exploitation of minors
  • Online solicitation of a minor
  • Sexual assault
  • Child molestation

Levels of Sex Crimes Charges in Texas

In Texas, most sex offenses are charged and punished as felonies. For example, as a second-degree felony, sexual assault carries penalties 2 to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. As a first-degree felony, aggravated sexual assault can lead to 5 to 99 years in prison. State jail felonies are punishable by 180 days up to two years in jail while third-degree felonies carry penalties of 2 to 10 years in prison. All felonies may be subject to a $10,000 fine.

In Texas, sexual misconduct misdemeanors, such as public lewdness, sexting, and indecent exposure, may be charged as:

  • Class C misdemeanors (lowest level), carrying a fine of up to $500;
  • Class B misdemeanors, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and/or fines of up to $2,000; or
  • Class A misdemeanors, punishable by up to 1 year in jail and/or fines of up to $4,000

Aside from the imprisonment and fines, those convicted of sexual-related felonies are generally required to register as sex offenders. Registration may be for 10 years up to life. The length of time will be based on the type of offense for which you were convicted. As such, you will be required to register with your local law enforcement agency. Your identity, address, photo, as well as the nature of your offense are then made public record for anyone to access. The registration requirement begins after any prison term is served, and it is a crime to fail to register.
