Indecency with a Child

Indecency With a Child:

 

As the title implies, this involves interaction with a child (a person under 17)  in just about any way where the person had the intent for his own or someone else's sexual gratification. It can be as simple as touching the breast of a female or male through the child's clothes if done for sexual gratification. If the person actual makes contact with the child in a sexual way the charge is a second degree felony and he may have to register as a sex offender for life. If the person exposed himself or caused the child to expose him or herself but no contact was made, it is a third degree felony necessitating reporting as a sex offender for 10 years after completing probation or prison time.

 

This type of offense normally is the defendant's word against the victim's word. It is very  important to discuss this type of case with an attorney quickly because since it is a "she said" "he said" situation and maybe involves no witnesses, information regarding the case can be presented to the grand jury with a good probability of a no-bill being brought back. If this is the result, then it is usually the end of the case and may be expunged at a later date.

 

Obviously this is a very serious charge with grave consequences if not handled properly. The attorney that handles this type of case needs to be very knowledgeable of the law and have in depth experience dealing with this type of offense which this firm does. Call us now for a free consultation. You can also email us but do not put any facts of your case in the email. You can reach us at 1-800-630-5985.
