For any individual, allegations of indecency with a child or molestation are frightening accusations to face.
Aside from the possibility of serving prison time or paying heavy fines, an individual’s professional reputation and personal relationships will likely be affected, and he or she will be a registered sex offender. Given the life-altering and lifelong potential consequences of these charges, it is absolutely critical to retain experienced legal representation as early on in the process as possible.
Consequences of a Indecency With a Child or Molestation Conviction
In Texas, it is illegal for any adult to engage in sexual contact with anybody younger than 17 years of age. Furthermore, it is illegal for any adult to expose themselves to a child or cause any person younger than 17 to expose themselves as an act of sexual gratification. Individuals facing allegations of either of these offences may face the following consequences:
- Lifetime registration as a sex offender
- Becoming a felon
- Long prison terms
It is critical that legal representation is promptly secured once charges have been leveled against you. Our legal team understands how these charges will likely be prosecuted and how best to defend against them.
