Child Sex Crimes
Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with a child sex crime?
According to Tex. Penal Code § 21.11, an individual can be charged with indecency with a child if they engage in sexual contact with a child, expose their genitals with a child present, or expose a child’s genitals with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person.
Depending on the age difference between you and the minor, as well as the circumstances of the situation, you may be facing serious consequences even if you are cleared of sex with a minor charges. Individuals who work with children run the risk of losing their jobs regardless of the validity or truth of the charges. The legal punishments associated with a sex with a minor conviction increase in severity as the age difference between the accused and the minor increases. In Texas, a minor is considered any individual under the age of 17. Consensual relations are considered statutory rape if the accused individual is more than three years older than the minor. This rule applies unless the minor is under 14 years of age, in which case any type of sexual activity is considered sexual assault.
This offense is punishable as a felony of the second degree, which can result in two to 20 years in prison and/or a fine not more than $10,000, if the alleged offender engaged in sexual contact with a child. Otherwise, this offense is punishable as a felony of the third degree, which can result in two to ten years in prison and/or a fine not more than $10,000.
As defined in Tex. Penal Code § 43.26, an individual can be charged with possession of child porn or child pornography if they knowingly or intentionally possess material that visually depicts a child under the age of 18 engaging in sexual conduct, and the alleged offender knows the material depicts a child that is under the age of 18.
This offense is generally punishable as a felony of the third degree, which can result in a prison sentence from two to ten years and/or a fine up to $10,000. However, this offense is punishable as a felony of the second degree if the alleged offender promoted the child pornography, which can result in a prison sentence ranging from two to 20 and/or a fine not more than $10,000.
Child pornography allegations have the potential to impact an accused individual’s life in many detrimental ways. Because of the nature of child pornography, law enforcement agents, prosecutors, juries, and most people in general will very easily jump to conclusions about an accused individual.

Our attorneys will stand by your side and fight on your behalf. With our qualified Houston Indecency With a Child Attorneys representing your interests, you can minimize the potential damage of a child pornography allegation and save your reputation.
Depending on your line of work, a child pornography or sex with a minor offense can have disastrous consequences on your career. This can be especially true if you work with children. Even if these allegations are found completely untrue in a court of law, being charged with a child pornography offense will still appear on your criminal record. Seeing a charge of this nature on your record can influence a potential employer’s decision even if you explained the situation and your innocence. Being a registered sex offender will have an impact on where you can live and what jobs you can and cannot work.
