The crime of online solicitation of a minor is a felony offense. If the minor is under the age of 14, the offense is classified as a second-degree felony, which carries a penalty of 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Crimes involving all others under the age of 17 will be charged as a third-degree felony. The maximum jail sentence for this crime is 10 years.
In Texas, there are two ways that a person can be charged with online solicitation of a minor, including:
When an individual is convicted for either type of online solicitation offense, they will be required to register as a sex offender. This limits employment and housing opportunities. In addition, the offender will lose the right to possess a firearm and have a stain on his or her permanent criminal record.
