  • Indecency with a child by contact: The touching of a child — even through clothing — on the anus, breast or any part of the child's genitals. Additionally, it means touching a child — even through clothing — with the anus, breast or any part of the genitals of the accused. This is a second-degree felony and can result in a prison sentence of two to 20 years and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
  • Indecency with a child by exposure: An individual who exposes his or her anus or any part of the genitals knowing that the child is present or causes the child's anus or any part of the genitals to be exposed with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person. This is a third-degree felony that carries a prison range of two to 10 years and/or a fine of up to $10,000.

A conviction for indecency with a child can also result in the individual having to register as a sex offender. Typically, the duration is 10 years, but could become lifetime registration upon a second conviction. Let our firm defend you against these serious charges and devastating consequences.
