Is inappropriate touching a crime in Texas? Yes, it is. Typically, what we’re referring to by inappropriate touching would be a Class C-level offense punishable by fine only. Like a traffic ticket punishable by fine of up to $500.
So, if someone touches another person in an inappropriate way, say, on the buttocks or close to the breast area, then a person who is touched like that may feel like that was inappropriate. And the person who touched them that way, even though they didn’t cause bodily injury, could be charged with the Class C-level offense of inappropriate touching.
