In Texas, sexual harassment of a woman can be considered a crime – and police have released a video that they claim shows a “crime” in action.
The video, which has now gone viral, shows that a group of men approached a woman – who was walking with her boyfriend. The men harassed the woman by grabbing on her.
Dallas police claim they would like to question the men in the video.
Here is the video:
Under Texas law, if you make physical contact with another person with the intent to offend, you may be charged with assault. For example, if you rub a woman’s shoulders or touch her behind, you could be charged with assault. This is a class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500.
However, if you cause someone “pain” when you make contact with them, this is an assault and is a class A misdemeanor carrying a sentence of up to one year in county jail, and up to $4,000 in fines.
