San Antonio Juvenile Sex Offense Lawyer Protects Your Child’s Future

Seek the services of a skilled attorney to represent your child

Teenagers have more ways to explore their sexuality than ever before, especially due text messaging and “sexting.” But they do not realize the consequences that their actions can have. Through Kevin L. Collins, P.C. I offer defense services for children charged with juvenile sex offenses. I work closely with the child and the parents to reassure them that I will find the best result possible. Trust in my 27 years of experience to keep your child’s future secure.

What rights to juveniles have in the criminal justice system?

Sex offense cases in juvenile law often deal with children engaging in normal acts, but suddenly find that the consequences are much greater than they could have ever realized. In today’s smartphone-crazy world, one of those acts is “sexting,” the act of texting or sending pictures that include sexual content.

Another issue that arises from illicit picture messages is child pornography laws. In Texas, the age of consent is 17 years old. If your 17-year-old son receives an illicit picture from his 15- or 16-year-old girlfriend, he can be charged with possession of child pornography, whether or not he opened the message, and the girl can be charged with possession and distribution of child pornography, which is a second-degree felony. Additionally, if a 17- or 18-year-old were to have intercourse with a 16-year-old, could the older child can be charged with statutory rape and forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of his or her life.

Fortunately, there is an extremely high burden of proof required to find children in such circumstances guilty. As your criminal defense attorney, I fight for your child to ensure that the courts do not take any overly drastic action affecting your child for the rest of his or her life. The judge or jury must find beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime occurred. Even if there is strong evidence available, it is possible to have penalties reduced.
