Felony Charges Involving Minors

Lewd behavior involving minors is a felony offense in Texas. A criminal conviction for lewdness where children are the victims can mean heavy fines, prison time and possible lifetime sex offender registration as a sexual predator where ever you live. Registered sex offender information is accessible to the public and may be used by current or prospective employers, schools, neighborhood coalitions and others, making it extremely difficult to get an apartment, a job or an education.
