Any crime of a sexual nature committed here in Fort Worth or the rest of the state will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. While it is true that convicted sex crime offenders do have a difficult road ahead, there is no question that the challenges which exist for an offender of child sexual abuse are significantly more difficult to bear. Even in cases involving juvenile sex offenders, the penalties and punishments they face upon conviction will have a dramatic and long-lasting impact on their lives. Lengthy prison sentences, hefty fines, ineligibility for early parole and other harsh penalties are just a few of the challenges that will lie ahead if you are convicted of this type of crime. Increased penalties can also be sought in cases involving minors under the age of 6 and cases where the offender is accused of committing multiple acts of child sexual abuse within a 30-day period.
Once you have completed your prison sentence or been released on parole, trying to find a well-paying job, secure suitable housing, get a loan, continue higher education and move forward with your life can seem almost impossible as the opportunities available to convicted offenders of child sexual abuse are often few and far between. In addition, any adult convicted of child sexual abuse is required to register on the Publix Sex Offender Database immediately upon his or her release, and maintain that registration for life. Juveniles convicted of child sexual abuse will be required to maintain their sex offender registration status for a minimum of 10 years. Everywhere you go your past will follow you. Your crimes will be available as part of the sex offender database for all to see.
