Texas legislatures have little mercy for a person accused of Aggravated Sexual Assault Against a Child Under Six and have passed profuse laws that are uncompromising.  While those proven guilty of such a crime undoubtedly deserve punishment, the law has the effect of putting those wrongly accused in jeopardy. Sexual allegations, that are generally performed in secret without witnesses, are often made based on the word of a single person, in this case, a very young child who may be unreliable, suggestible, and/or subject to manipulation or leading by an adult. The Austin Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Under Six Attorney, Paul Darrow, will face hostile prosecution head on, aggressively, and will treat you with the dignity you deserve.

You cannot compromise when it comes to this charge, as it’s punishment includes a first-degree felony, punishable by death (if a repeat offender) or life without parole. However, a 2008 landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Kennedy v. Louisiana, 554 U.S. 407 (2008), referencing the cruel and unusual punishment clause of the Eighth Amendment, determined that a state may not punish the crime of rape of a child with the death penalty against an individual when the crime did not result in the death of the victim.
