The age of consensual sex in Texas is 17. However, Texas follows the same legal guidelines as does ALL states, in reserving the right to apply other criminal statutes. Some of which can be, contributing to the deliquency of a minor, coercion or intimidation by a person in a position of authority, supplying alcohol to a minor, submitting a minor to pornography, and so forth. Therefore if the state is aggressive in pursuing such matters (and Texas usually is) any number of counts of criminal activity can be brought against the adult.
