Child Molestation Overview & Penalties

From engaging in sexual conduct that is harmful to a child’s physical, mental, or emotional welfare to allowing the sexual performance of a child, there are many different acts which constitute as child molestation or indecency with a child in Texas.

In most cases, child molestation is a second-degree felony, punishable by a prison sentence ranging from two to 20 years and a fine of up to $20,000.
