Sexual Assault

What Is Sexual Assault?

Sexual assault is one of the most serious charges an individual can be accused of in Texas. The term sexual assault refers to sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the victim. Some forms of sexual assault that a person in Texas might be accused of include: attempted rape, fondling or unwanted sexual touching, and forcing another person to perform sexual acts, such as oral sex. If you have been wrongly accused of sexual assault, it is urgent that you hire an aggressive and experienced lawyer to fight in your corner. Matthew Pillado PLLC is here to help you.

One of the most controversial disputes is that over the frequency of false allegations of sexual assault. Defending against false charges of sexual assault is imperative to your future and the future of your loved ones. These types of charges, if not defended properly, can haunt a person for the rest of their lives.

"Of the 136 cases of sexual assault reported over the 10-year period, 8 (5.9 percent)
are coded as false allegations. These results, taken in the context of an examination of
previous research, indicate that the prevalence of false allegations is between 2 percent and 10 percent."
