Molesting a child is a crime involving sexual or inappropriate contact between an adult and a child. Commonly referred to as pedophilia, child abuse or child rape, molestation is a serious crime. Texas has several laws that apply to molestation cases, all of which provide for criminal penalties for any violator. Texas law deals with child molestation in terms of sexual abuse or sexual conduct or indecency with a child. The law considers anyone younger than the age of 17 a child, though more significant penalties can apply if the child is younger. For example, Texas Penal Code section 21.11 criminalizes indecency with a child as sexual contact with a child and charges it as a third degree felony. Continual sexual abuse of a child, as defined in Texas Penal Code 21.02, is two or more acts of sexual contact between a person older than 17 and younger than 14, and is charged as first-degree felony.
