Houston Sexting Defense Lawyers

What is Sexting?

Sexting involves receiving or sending a sexually explicit text message or photo via a mobile phone.  Even if your son or daughter consented to the sexting, he or she could end up in jail and be forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of his or her life.  In addition to alerting the public about the sex offense, sex offender registration will impact your son or daughter’s ability to get a job, travel freely and to live in certain areas.

Houston Criminal Online Solicitation of a Minor Defense Lawyers

Online solicitation occurs when a person 17 years of age or older knowingly solicits a minor online to meet up and engage in sexual contact or sexual intercourse with himself (or herself) or another person.   These online solicitations can occur over the Internet, by e-mail or text messaging.  Even if your son or daughter were just engaging in fantasy, did not intend for the meeting to occur and the meeting did not occur, he or she can be charged with a sex offense.

Aggressive Defense

Most people and even some grand jurors understand the difference between a teen making a bad decision by flirting through technology and an adult possessing child pornography.  However, if the teen is 17 years or older, Texas law does not distinguish the two.  Because your teen’s future is at stake, it is essential that you fight the charges.
