Dallas sex criminal defense lawyers Broden & Mickelsen have published a new resource to help the public understand Texas laws on sexual assault involving a spouse.
The complicated nature of sexual assault law makes it difficult for both victims and the accused to navigate the Texas legal system, particularly when a spouse or intimate partner is involved in the alleged assault. Dallas sex crime criminal defense lawyers Broden & Mickelsen have published a new resource to help the public understand Texas laws on sexual assault involving a spouse.
“In some cases, people mistakenly believe that it is impossible to sexually assault a spouse because the couple is married. However, this is an outdated concept and no longer the law in any state in the country. In a handful of states, the law carves out narrow exceptions for sexual assault that takes place in a marriage and an individual may be charged with a less serious offense. However, this is not the law in Texas.”
