Our accomplished defense lawyers will work to help you minimize the damage to your life and reputation, and to help you avoid the consequences of a child sex crime conviction.

Sexual Molestation Defense Strategies

Under Texas law, child molestation constitutes sexual abuse, misconduct or indecency with a child. The law considers anyone under the age of 17 to be a child. Penalties for all child sex crimes are severe, but can be even stricter depending on the age of the child and if it is proven that the abuse was continual.

We handle a wide range of child sex crime defense cases for clients throughout Texas, including those involving:

  • Aggravated sexual assault of a child
  • Indecency with a child
  • Continuous sexual abuse of a child
  • Online solicitation of a child

We will explore all defense strategies to help you pursue a favorable outcome and to protect your reputation. We are skilled at identifying inconsistencies in the alleged victim’s testimony.

We will search for signs that the alleged victim was coerced or coached by parents, law enforcement officials or other parties into testifying against you. As former prosecutors, our attorneys know how to effectively defend our clients against child sex crime charges.
