    Luke Armstrong, the son of ex-professional cyclist Lance Armstrong, has been arrested in Texas for sexual assault of a child, according to an Austin police department arrest affidavit.

    The girl reported the incident in November 2020, telling police that she had asked Armstrong to pick her up from the party, where she had been drinking.

    The victim told police that she couldn’t remember the journey with Armstrong in his truck and could only remember waking up on a couch in Armstrong’s father’s house and being sexually assaulted.

    The affidavit says that Armstrong admitted to having sex with the girl during a December 2020 phone call.

    In the state of Texas, a person under 17 is not considered mature enough to consent to sex.

    However, it also has a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ law on its books that allows for consensual sex between a teenager 14 or older and another person no more than three years older.

    However, Texas also has a law that people 16 or under cannot legally give consent to sex if they are unconscious, asleep or have been ‘administered mind-altering substances’, which can be applied to a person who is too drunk to be aware of what is happening.
