Texas Sexual Abuse Lawyer
Child molestation is any unlawful, inappropriate, or sexual contact between an adult and a child. Child molestation is a serious criminal offense, and Texas has several laws that can apply to situations involving molestation. While molestation is often considered a form of sexual abuse, it differs in the fact that most molestation cases concern isolated incidents that occur only once. This can include any number of situations and any number of offenders, regardless of whether a victim knew them or not.
Texas laws consider anyone under the age of 17 a child. In many situations, molestation committed against younger children is more severely penalized. While child molesters are more likely to be reported to the police than abusers, these cases can still involve a number of difficulties, including cases in which victims know their offenders. These situations, and any other child molestation allegation, require deft legal assistance and aggressive advocacy. Whether or not your case results in criminal procedures, it is recommended that you seek qualified legal counsel as soon as possible in order to learn more about pursuing civil legal actions.
