(2)  at the time of the commission of each of the acts of sexual abuse, the actor is 17 years of age or older and the victim is a child younger than 14 years of age.

(c)  For purposes of this section, “act of sexual abuse” means any act that is a violation of one or more of the following penal laws:

(1)  aggravated kidnapping under Section 20.04(a)(4), if the actor committed the offense with the intent to violate or abuse the victim sexually;

(2)  indecency with a child under Section 21.11(a)(1), if the actor committed the offense in a manner other than by touching, including touching through clothing, the breast of a child;

(3)  sexual assault under Section 22.011;

(4)  aggravated sexual assault under Section 22.021;

(e)  A defendant may not be convicted in the same criminal action of an offense listed under Subsection (c) the victim of which is the same victim as a victim of the offense alleged under Subsection (b) unless the offense listed in Subsection (c):

(1)  is charged in the alternative;

(3)  is considered by the trier of fact to be a lesser included offense of the offense alleged under Subsection (b).

(f)  A defendant may not be charged with more than one count under Subsection (b) if all of the specific acts of sexual abuse that are alleged to have been committed are alleged to have been committed against a single victim.

(g)  It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this section that the actor:
