Penalties for Child Molestation

The penalties for child sexual abuse will depend on a number of factors; for example, if the child is under the age of 12, the penalties can become extremely serious. If you are over the age of 18, and you are charged with molestation of an individual under 12, you're facing felony charges.

If you are over 18 and charged with molestation of a child between 12 and 16, you will face second degree felony charges that carry up to 15 years in prison. If you are under the age of 18 and are charged with molestation of a minor between 12 and 16, you face third degree felony penalties which carry up to 15 years in prison.

    Our attorneys have been working in the courts for a long time and have developed positive relationships with all the people you may face during your case. This can help improve the position in your case, which can help your outcome.
