Consequences of a Sexting Conviction in Texas

Sexting falls under the crime of “solicitation of a minor.” When this occurs online or through a cell phone, it can be charged as a sex crime with serious penalties. What many people don’t know is that minors sending pictures of themselves to other minors is illegal, resulting in a Class C misdemeanor that can come with fines of up to $500.

However, proving that the sender and recipient were involved in a dating relationship and that they were no more than two years apart in age can help to defend against such charges. You can find more information by clicking here.

Adults Who Send Materials to Minors

It is illegal for an adult to send sexually explicit materials to anyone under the age of 18. The penalties for doing so could include allegations of child pornography and result in fines of up to $10,000 and prison sentences of up to 20 years. Along with those penalties, those convicted will have to register as a sex offender, making it difficult to find housing, employment, and financial opportunities.
