Midland County Attorneys for Child-Related Crimes

There are many different criminal offenses that could cause harm to a child or place a child in extreme danger. Under Texas law, some offenses provide for increased charges and penalties when the alleged victim is a child or a minor under a certain age. Examples of this type of offense include sexual assault, solicitation of prostitution, and human trafficking. For example, a solicitation of prostitution charge is a state jail felony if the prostitute is an adult and a second-degree felony if the prostitute is under the age of 18. Other offenses were defined to specifically address behaviors that harm or endanger children. Examples include causing injury to a child, child endangerment, and child pornography.

Both types of offenses are extremely serious. The specific level of the charge and the penalties prescribed for a conviction depend on a host of circumstantial factors, including the child's age, the nature of the alleged behavior, and the criminal history of the defendant. Most charges, however, that are related to crimes against children are prosecuted felonies, the penalties for which usually include lengthy prison terms.

  • Sexual exploitation of a child
