Juvenile Sex Crimes

Houston Juvenile Sex Crimes Attorney James Sullivan


Children will be children, and in these present times, children reach puberty at a younger and younger age and become naturally curious about their own sexuality. Unfortunately, their natural inclination to experiment often breaks Texas state laws, and these children as young as ten can get arrested for serious felony offenses.  These children need good representation to save them from possible lifetime repercussions. Children can be ordered to register as sex offenders until the age of 28. Older children can be certified as adults and have their cases transferred to adult court where they could face many years in prison. As their Board Certified Houston Juvenile Attorney, I will work hard to represent your child so that he will not have to register as a Texas sex offender and possibly not be found delinquent at all. I have represented many juveniles accused of sex offenses and have had their cases dismissed or reduced from a serious felony such as aggravated sexual assault of a child to a misdemeanor offense such as assault.
I have a proven record and reputation of fighting for children accused of sex crimes in court. Your child should not be marked for life for something he or she did as a young teenager. I will work hard to make sure your child is not sent to TJJD (Texas Juvenile Justice Department). In all of my cases, my clients have never had to register as sex offenders, an ordeal that could have negatively impacted them for life. In fact, I have actually worked to have several former clients of other juvenile lawyers be allowed to de-register from the public sex offender registration list. I have the experience in getting Houston juvenile sex offense cases dismissed or won at trial.

I have proven experience in such serious sex offenses as:
  • aggravated sexual assault of a child
  • sexual assault of a child
  • indecency with a child
  • indecent exposure
  • possession of child pornography
  • promotion of child pornography

What many times is a horrible misunderstanding regarding your child's sexual behavior I will work hard to minimize or eliminate the effects of. Sex offenses are always a deeply personal and serious issue, and I will work with the utmost respect, compassion and professionalism. I am a Board Certified Houston Juvenile Defense Attorney. I will help your child and your family get through it.
