Indecency With A Child & Texas Law
A person commits the offense of “Indecency With A Child” if contact, whether physical or otherwise, is sexual in nature. In fact, the law offers two different criminal classifications based on whether physical contact occurred or not.
Indecency with a child by exposure is a Third-Degree Felony that carries a potential prison sentence ranging from two to 10 years TDCJ. The offense is committed if the accused exposed their genitals while the child is present, or caused the child to expose their genitals.
Indecency with a child by physical contact is a Second-Degree Felony that carries a potential prison sentence of two to 20 years TDCJ. The offense occurs when sexual contact is made with any part of a child’s body by the sexual organs of the offender or vice verse. This crime occurs whether the contact occurred over the clothing or under the clothing.
