This group of criminal allegations is quite broad in where it is found in the Texas Penal Code. It can pertain to rape, incest, indecent exposure, public lewdness, indecency with a child or an improper relationship with a person of authority. Most often, this subset of crime falls into child molestation and rape.
Most people consider rape to be sex without consent This is true, but it is not quite that simple. Did the alleged victim consent to sex after a night of drinking and come to regret it once sober? That happens more often than what is reported on the news. The sexual history of the alleged victim may also be a contributing factor for a jury to weigh if your case goes to trial. The fact is that rape is dramatized by the media, and you are starting off at a severe disadvantage if you are ever charged with this crime.
