Child molestation is described as sexual abuse of a child by an adult, a significantly older person or by a person in a position of power or influence, such as member of the clergy, teacher, parent, or coach. Any activity meant for the sexual stimulation of the adult—hugging, kissing, touching, or other physical contact—are all classified as molestation when the activity does not include actual sexual penetration.

What Type of Penalties Am I Facing?

Depending upon the gravity of the charges, a person convicted of child molestation may face up to a lifetime in prison. Virtually any person who cares for or has contact with children on a regular basis may be at risk for being accused of child molestation. All it takes is one accusation from one person to begin an investigation and criminal proceedings that could potentially ruin your life.

Child molestation is a serious offense, carrying the following penalties:

  • Restitution to victims
  • Mandatory registration as a sex offender
  • Social and employment implications
  • Between 3 and 8 years in prison for a first offense

Sex crimes involving children usually draw a good deal of media attention, a level of prejudice against the defendant from jurors, and fierce prosecution from the State. You must have an equal level of legal skill to help you fight back! Get in touch with our criminal defense law firm today to learn more.
