Dallas Defense Attorney for Indecency with a Child

We Defend the Person, Not the Charge.

The firm of Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP knows that although a criminal charge of "indecency with a child" is technically a less serious offense than a charge of child sexual assault, the consequences of a conviction can be just as serious. It goes on your criminal record and can be seen by potential employers and landlords. It can prevent you from holding some jobs and even limit your housing options.

At the Dallas criminal defense firm of Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, we have extensive experience defending clients against sex crime charges, including charges involving children. If you are facing criminal charges for indecency with a minor, it is critical to hire a defense lawyer who understands how to fight the charges and who will work aggressively to protect your future.

We offer free consultations to help you make the next step—call (214) 301-5007 today.

We Tell Your Side of the Story

We recognize that claims of indecency with a minor sometimes result from a misunderstanding about acceptable and unacceptable behavior, and can even be the result of false allegations brought under the influence of another adult. Our Dallas criminal defense lawyers are experienced at extracting these issues and preparing the strongest defense given the facts of the situation.

What Is Indecency with a Child?

Inappropriate touching and indecent exposure is a form of child sexual abuse that does not involve penetration. This charge is also brought against adults who expose their genitals if they know a child is present or who expose a child's genitals (if the intent is sexual arousal).

A charge of indecency with a minor is sexual contact with a child under the age of 17 with the intent to arouse or gratify one's sexual desire. This includes touching a child's genitals through his or her clothing, or an adult rubbing his or her genitals against a child while the adult is clothed.

In order for law enforcement to bring a charge of indecency with a child, the "adult" must be older than the "child" by three years or more. In addition, the adult must not have used force, threats, or coercion, and must not be a registered sex offender. If force was used against the child, the adult will be charged with the more serious crime of child sexual abuse or statutory rape.

Let Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP defend you from these charges. Our understanding of the law, our trial experience, and our investigative resources make us the ideal representatives for your story. We understand that the prosecution’s charges may not reflect the truth of your story. Contact us today to help us share the truth of these allegations.
