Child Molestation Attorney in Conroe, TX

Child Molestation Cases

Child molestation involves inappropriate or sexual contact with a child. Child molestation charges can include indecency with a child, sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault. Child molestation cases can be extremely emotional and will require skilled representation by a confident Conroe criminal defense lawyer. In this state, children under the age of 14 are considered incapable of giving consent to a sexual act. A person can also be charged with sex crimes if the alleged victim was between 14 and 17 years old, and they were three years older than the victim when the sex act occurred.

You could be facing many years in prison if you are convicted of child molestation. Attorney Doug Atkinson is a skilled criminal defense lawyer that can provide capable legal counsel in cases involving child molestation. He is a competent trial attorney that will aggressively attack the prosecution's case and diligently protect your rights.

  • Imprisonment
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Court-ordered counseling
  • Sex offender registration

You will most likely be charged with a first-degree felony if it is believed that the alleged sexual abuse occurred on a regular basis. A first-degree felony conviction in a child molestation case is punishable by up to 99 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

There are several laws that apply to child molestation charges that Doug Atkinson can explain. He can also discuss possible defense strategies and what you can expect during legal proceedings.
