Houston Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child Attorney

Proudly Serving as Continuous Child Assault of Children Attorneys

When sexual abuse of a child is not a single incident but is an ongoing behavior, defined by Texas statute as occurring repeatedly for a period of more than thirty days, the adult can be charged with Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child. Our Houston continuous sexual abuse of a child attorney can deliver the kind of representation that is hard to find elsewhere.


A Continuous Sexual Abuse charge carries a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison without parole, and up to life without parole. This is an extremely serious charge for which neither parole nor deferred adjudication is possible. If the person being accused has a prior felony conviction for a sex offense, it carries an automatic life sentence. Once released from prison the person must register as a sex offender for the rest of their life.

Elements of a Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child Charge

Continuous sexual abuse involves two or more acts of sexual abuse against a child under age 14 over a period of at least 30 days. Acts of sexual abuse include the commission of any of these offenses:

  • Indecency with a child (by contact with genitals or anus but not breast)
  • Sexual assault
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Aggravated kidnapping with intent to violate or abuse the victim sexually
  • Burglary of a habitation with intent to commit a sexual offense
  • Sexual performance by a child
