Most Sex Cases Involve Minors

April 13, 2009 (Texas) : Most sex assault cases involve minors.

Det. Vaughn Dierlam said the majority of the sexual assault cases that cross his desk do not involve “a stranger jumping out of the bushes and attacking.”

According to Dierlam, the most prevalent form of sexual assault in Bay City is minors having unconsensual sex with an adult partner. We have a lot of minors having (what the law sees as unconsensual) sex with older boyfriends and girlfriends and that is a felony.”

“There are more and more 18-year-old kids who are going to registered and labeled a sex offender for the rest of their life because they slept with their 15-year-old girlfriend,” said Dierlam.
