A person who engages in sexual activity with someone under the age of legal consent has committed statutory rape by legal definition; in Texas, the age of legal consent is 17. Even though the act may have been consensual, it doesn’t erase what the law states.  It is often a very difficult situation with unhappy children and angry parents involved.  Because the crime of statutory rape is so controversial and requires a judgment based  on intention as well as actual occurrences, it is vital to retain criminal defense lawyers in Bryan and College Station who have extensive experience working with all the parties that can be involved with a charge of statutory rape.

Attorneys who have handled these types of cases advise that some of the difficulties encountered include:

  • College students dating high school students and/or meeting at campus parties.
  • A community attitude that assumes guilt merely by being charged.
  • The effect of outside influences on what happened, including alcohol, drugs, or a consensual act.

Defending statutory rape offenses are unique cases to handle as so much can be involved.  It requires a team of criminal defense attorneys to seek out the facts of what happened, the specific reasons that prosecution is being sought, and an ability to protect clients without judging them.  The attorneys at Gray, Granberry, & Jones have seen these cases from both legal viewpoints – prosecution and defense – and can analyze both sides of the case to plan the best defense!
