Fort Bend County Sexual Abuse Attorney
Sugar Land Sex Crime Lawyer
Any sexual conduct with a child under the age of 18 that is harmful, unwanted or forceful sexual contact that directly detriments the child's physical, mental or emotional health can be considered sexual child abuse. The state of Texas heavily prosecutes individuals who are charged with any sex crime and especially so if there was a minor involved in the incident.
You can be charged of sexual child abuse if you were accused of fondling a minor, exposing yourself, having sexual relations such as intercourse, sodomy or penetration of a minor with an object, lewd or lascivious act with a minor or if you were accused of sexual assault, child pornography, you can be arrested and charged with this offense. It is important that the moment you are accused of engaging in a sexual manner with a minor that you immediately retain the representation of a Sugar Land Criminal Defense Lawyer at Stornello Law Firm, P.C.
Sex crimes hold some of the highest penalties in the state of Texas besides violent crimes and prosecutors will do everything in their power to ensure that offenders accused of violating a minor receive the harshest penalties allowed. If you are tried and convicted of sexual abuse toward a minor, you will be required to spend time in prison, pay steep fines and could potentially be served with restraining orders and other court-mandated abuse courses.
A conviction of sexual abuse will also require you to spend the rest of your life registering as a convicted sex offender. This online registry is available to the public and displays information on your conviction and personal information such as name, age, height and weight and your address.
