Indecency With A Child Defense Attorney in San Antonio
Few criminal charges carry the same severity as sex crime charges involving children.
In Texas sex crimes against children are taken very seriously. Additionally, these types of crimes are also federal crimes and as a result will be tried and punished at that level as well.
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 indecency with a child by exposure, which is exposing without touching.
