Information on Rape and Sexual Assault

Understanding the act in question may be the first step towards building a strong defense. In Texas, a sexual act may be considered assault if:

  • The victim actively objects to the activity
  • The sexual act is committed by means of threat, intimidation, physical force, violence, or with the assistance of a deadly weapon
  • The victim was unknowingly under the influence of drugs or alcohol and unable to defend themselves against the sexual act
