Question: Is the age of consent a felony in Texas?

Statutory rape in Texas is the act of knowingly having consensual sex with someone under the age of consent. It is a form of sexual assault. This offense is a second degree felony.

In Texas, the age of consent is 17, which means if an adult engages in any form of sexual activity with a child under 17, it is considered statutory rape – even if the younger individual agreed to the sexual activity or lied about their age.
