Continuous sexual abuse of a child in Texas encompasses a broad spectrum of sexual offenses, penalized with extreme severity under the law. These charges can result from any sexual conduct with a child under 17, including non-penetrative acts, with the law specifically harsh on abuse against children under 14 and disabled individuals.
