Sexual Assault Charges in Amarillo

Arrested? Put a Former Prosecutor on Your Side.

Sexual assault is also called rape in Texas. It is defined as a person intentionally, knowingly, and recklessly causing or threatening to cause bodily harm to another through sexual contact without the victim’s consent. If you have been charged with this offense, the penalties are harsh and can have a lifelong impact. Your future depends on representation from an Amarillo sexual assault lawyer.

At The Law Offices of D. Chris Hesse, we take an aggressive stand for our clients. With many years of experience and a careful attention to detail, Attorney Chris Hesse is highly capable of fighting for you and protecting your rights.

What Penalties Could I be Charged with if Convicted?

There are many factors that affect the outcome of a sexual assault case. While most offenses are considered second degree felonies, sexual assault can quickly escalate to a first degree felony if violent measures were taken during the act.

Based on the specifics of your charges, penalties for sexual assault can include:

  • Second degree felony: up to 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
  • First degree felony: up to 99 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

While these charges are harsh, an arrest does not automatically equal a conviction. You have the right to a fair trial in which your attorney can defend you. Defenses to sexual assault charges can include lack of intent, consent of the victim, and lack of knowledge.
