Amarillo Online Solicitation Defense Lawyers

Protecting Your Child's Future

Did you know that if your 15-year-old daughter sent a nude photo of herself to her 17-year-old boyfriend via her mobile phone, she could be charged with distribution of child pornography in Texas? Did you know that her boyfriend could be charged with possession of child pornography, even if he did not look at the photo? This is called "sexting", an increasingly common phenomenon that can have devastating consequences for minors.

At Herrmann & Weaver, Attorneys at Law, we believe one mistake should not ruin a child's life. Therefore, we aggressively defend young people accused of sexting, online solicitation and related sex crimes. Our goal is to keep the charge from impacting your child's future.

Texas Sexting Defense Lawyers

Sexting involves sending or receiving a sexually explicit text message or photo via a cell phone. Even if your child consented to the sexting, he or she can end up in juvenile jail and be forced to register as sex offender for the rest of his or her life. In addition to letting the public know about the sex offense, sex offender registration will impact your child's ability to get a job, live in certain areas and travel freely.

Amarillo Online Solicitation Defense Attorneys

Online solicitation involves sending explicit messages to a minor through the Internet. This can include chat rooms, social networking sites, e-mail and instant messaging. Even if your child was just role playing or thought the person on the other end was of age and later found out it was a minor, he or she can be charged with a sex crime.

Aggressive Defense in State and Federal Cases

Most people understand the difference between a teen making a bad decision and flirting through technology and an adult possessing child pornography. However, Texas law often fails to separate the two. Because your child's future is at stake, it is essential that you fight the charges.

Our criminal defense attorneys are both former felony prosecutors who use their knowledge of the opposition to build strong cases for our clients. Further, they are Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. We have extensive trial experience and a proven record of success. Let us help protect your child's future.
