Child Molestation & The Texas Legal System
The law as it relates to what’s required for a person to be charged with child molestation is broad and doesn’t require the penetration of any of the child’s genital areas for a charge to stick. If you showed a child pornographic material or even touched them through the clothes, it could be enough to warrant a criminal charge related to child molestation.
In general, a large number of child molestation claims have nothing to do with the child, but everything to do with one person’s spite for another. We’ve seen cases where allegations of child molestation were made to help one parent get child custody while tarnishing the reputation of the other. Several people have been accused as a result of false interpretations by child care professionals, educations, parents, and even neighbors who find it hard to mind their own business. Regardless of why you were accused of child molestation, Jack B. Carroll & Associates will investigate the matter and bring the facts to the court.
If you’re facing criminal charges for child molestation, were accused of such, or if you’re the target of an investigation related to child molestation, call Jack B. Carroll & Associates immediately at 713-228-4607.
