San Antonio Indecency with a Child Defense Lawyer
What Is Considered Indecency With A Child?
According to the Texas Penal Code, indecency with a child is categorized into two specific crimes. One is indecency with a child by contact, which involves touching, and the other is indecency with a child by exposure, which is exposing without touching.
Depending on the nature of the offense, you could be charged with a second -or third-degree felony, for which the penalties are as follows:
- Second-Degree Felony - 2 to 20 years in prison and $10,000 fine
- Third-Degree Felony - 2 to 10 years in prison and $10,000 fine
Although indecency with a child charges vary, even a first-time offender may be required to register as a sex offender, spend time in jail, and pay a hefty fine.
