An Overview of Texas' Statutory Rape Laws

In the state of Texas, those aged 17 or younger do not legally have the ability to give informed consent to sexual activities. Therefore, an adult aged 18 or older who engages in sex with them is said to have committed a crime known as "statutory rape," even if the sex was actually consensual. In statutory rape cases, the prosecution is not required to prove that any force or violence was involved, just that sexual conduct occurred between an adult and someone younger than the age of 18.

Texas Theft Punishments

Theft occurs when you take something without the intention of returning it, or only agree to return an item once you've received something else that you're not legally entitled to.
