Society has a very harsh view of sexual offenders, especially those who commit sex crimes against children. As a result, if you are convicted of a sex crime against a child, your life will never be the same, even after you serve out your sentence.
If you are convicted of a sex crime against a child in Texas, you are more often than not going to prison. Texas law includes a version of Jessica’s Law, which mandates prison time for those convicted of committing a sex crime against a child. Your liberty will be taken away from you for a period of time ranging between two years and life, depending upon the charges and the circumstances of your case.
Once you are released from prison, you will be labeled as a sexual offender. It is likely that you will have to register as a sexual offender for life. With this designation on your record—which is public knowledge—it will be difficult for you to find a job or a place to live. You will also have to abide by a long list of restrictions for the duration of your registration as a sex offender.
If you have been charged with sexually abusing or assaulting a child, it is important to do whatever you can to fight these charges and avoid the serious and permanent consequences of a conviction.
