Sex with a Minor Charges in Texas
San Antonio Criminal Defense Attorney
Sex with a minor charges are extremely severe. Even if the victim gave
consent to the act, it can still be criminally prosecuted. Children under
the age of 18 are not considered mentally experienced enough to make a
decision to have sex with someone over the age of 18, therefore one who
does can be charged with statutory rape or sex with a minor. Unfortunately,
some people are charged with sex with a minor only after finding that
they were lied to by the minor regarding their age. The defendant may
have had a good reason to believe that the minor was over the age of 18.
