Good afternoon, Based on your son's age he may well be charged and tried as an adult. Under Texas law the following are possible consequences if he pleads to, or is convicted of, aggravated sexual assault:
a) Confinement in prison for life or a term from 5 to 99 years in prison; AND b) An optional fine not to exceed $10,000
A citizen accused of a first degree felony in Texas MAY be eligible for community supervision probation. If a person is eligible for probation, he or she may be place on probation instead of imprisoned for: a) Up to 10 years of deferred adjudication community supervision; OR b) From 5 to 10 years of post conviction community supervision; AND c) Up to 180 days in county jail as a condition of probation.
It is critical that you son have the very best representation he can in this matter.
I wish you and your family well.
