Sex Crimes

Sex offenses, such as prostitution and child sex crimes that include indecency with a child, sexual assault of a child, and aggravated sexual assault of a child, are all felonies.

Drug Possession

State and Federal drug crimes include possession and "trafficking" (manufacture or transport). In Texas, possession means intentionally having a controlled substance.

Child Pornography
