Austin Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child Lawyer

Paul Darrow Proudly Serving as Continuous Child Assault of Children Attorney

The charge of Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child arrives when the sexual assault on a child is not a single incident but is an ongoing behavior. An ongoing behavior is one, defined by Texas statute, as occurring repeatedly for a period of more than thirty days. If you or a loved one is facing this charge, an Austin Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child Lawyer is needed more than ever. Look no further than Attorney Paul Darrow.


A Continuous Sexual Assault charge carries a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison and for habitual offenders, life without parole. This is an extremely serious charge for which neither parole nor deferred adjudication is possible. If the person being accused has a prior felony conviction for a sex offense, it carries an automatic life sentence. In any case, registration as a sex offender is required. The catastrophic effects of being convicted of this charge are insurmountable and an Attorney must be trusted early on to prevent them.

Elements of a Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child Charge

Continuous sexual abuse involves two or more acts of sexual abuse against a child under age 14 over a period of at least 30 days. Acts of sexual abuse include the commission of any of these offenses:

  • Indecency with a child (by contact with genitals or anus but not breast)
  • Sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Aggravated kidnapping with intent to violate or abuse the victim sexually
  • Burglary of a habitation with intent to commit a sexual offense
  • Sexual performance by a child

When facing these egregious charges, it’s necessary to contact the type of attorney that’s had a wealth of experience defending them. Paul Darrow is the only Austin Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child Attorney who has worked as a sex crimes prosecutor and knows every tactic of the other side.
