Child Sex Offenses

Facing child sex charges for online solicitation of a minor, aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual assault of a child, or indecency with a child?

The government is tough on crime, and even tougher in child sex offenses. Your reputation, career, and freedom are on the line. You want an attorney who understands what you are going through and has the specialized knowledge to successfully handle these unique cases. For almost 20 years, Houston Child Sex Crimes Attorney Neal Davis has represented individuals charged with sex crimes. He has earned a reputation for aggressively fighting these cases and winning results, often before the case goes to trial.



Defending the Rights of People in Houston,
Harris County and throughout Texas in State & Federal Courts

In child sex cases, the public presumes the accused guilty, and prosecutors and judges take a harsh position. In Texas, District Attorneys and judges are elected. That means they do not want to appear soft on crime, particularly crimes involving children. That is why someone accused of a child sex crime needs a highly skilled and experienced attorney who knows how to handle these types of cases on their side to fight on their behalf.

With nearly 20 years of experience, Houston sex crimes attorney Neal Davis believes that you are entitled to respect, discretion and an expert defense. The Neal Davis Law Firm is a top-rated, Board Certified criminal law firm in Houston specializing in child sex offense cases. Neal has dedicated his life and career to helping people in difficult situations by providing a client-centered approach in his practice and offering the same level of service and attention to each case.

Neal and his legal team are criminal law experts when it comes to a wide range of sex charges, including child sex offenses, such as:

  • Continuous sex abuse of a child
  • Aggravated sexual assault of a child
  • Sexual assault of a child (sometimes referred to as statutory rape)
  • Indecency with a child by contact
  • Indecency with a child by exposure
  • Child Pornography
  • Online solicitation of a child
  • Improper student-teacher relationship

Allegations of Sex Crimes, and Investigations of Sex Offenses, are Life Shattering for the Accused

“A person facing a sex crimes charge is at one of the lowest points of his or her life—especially if a child is involved. The most common child sex crimes include indecency with a child, sexual assault of a child, aggravated sex assault of a child, online solicitation of a child, and child pornography. People automatically tend to presume that a person accused of a sex crime is guilty. Family and friends may have cut them off, and they may be having employment problems since being charged. In short, no matter how strongly they have denied the allegations, others have essentially dismissed them. That is why they need someone to speak up for them, give them hope, and fight every step of the way.”

"Neal is the best attorney anyone could ever want. We started out in a situation we thought we would never be in with our child and a parents worst nightmare. Our son made a mistake while suffering from ptsd and at first we had a horrible attorney and things just didn???t feel right with her so we prayed for God to send us the right attorney. Neal was that perfect attorney we needed. His devotion to our son and his case was phenomenal. He was very professional and knew exactly how to handle his case to get the job done. He kept fighting for our son and we will forever be in his debt for that. If you need an attorney that will care about you and fight for you then Neal is who you want and he is worth every single penny! We pray blessings over him and thank God for him every single day."

"This man saved my life from false imprisonment. Neal's belief in 'liberty and justice for all' as laid out in the Constitution of the United States, and especially as that principle relates to constitutional rights regarding the receipt of a fair trial, coupled with his refusal to quit fighting, are attributes of a noble spirit and a man of high character." -H.F.

Why Child Sex Offenses are Different

Being accused of a child sex offense, such as aggravated sexual assault of a child or indecency with a child, requires a lawyer who knows how to handle these unique cases.

For various reasons, child sex crimes are different from other crimes - from how to attack them during the investigation phase to how to cross-examine the child complainant at trial.

Child sex crimes also have specific evidence and procedure rules unique to them. The range of punishment in these cases depends on the charge. Further, upon conviction, sex offender registration is required, sometimes for life.

Sex Crimes: child pornography and online solicitation

Child sex offenses include:

Indecency with a Child - When a person engages in sexual contact with any person under the age of 17, or exposes himself/herself to a child, or forces a child to expose himself or herself.
Sexual Assault of a Child - When a person engages in sexual penetration with a child 14 to 16 years old.
Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child - When a person engages in sexual penetration with a child under 14 years old. Texas also imposes a 25-year minimum sentence on cases of "super" aggravated sexual assault (assault of a child age 6 or younger).
Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child - When a person age 17 or older commits two or more acts of sexual abuse over a 30-day period or more, against a child who is younger than 14 years old.
Improper Student-Teacher Relationship - When an employee, including a teacher of a public or private elementary, middle or high school, engages in sexual contact with a student who is enrolled at the school or school district where the employee works.

He focused on listening and helping, not just explaining his fees
Client needed representation for a child sex abuse case that was complex and needed an attorney who understood the full extent of the law.

" Neal represented our son and the case against him was dismissed, while other attorneys we consulted primarily focused on explaining their fees and pushed us to settle. Neal took time to understand our needs and truly appreciate our values and to convey to the Court, the District Attorney and the Judge the true essence of the case details and the circumstances of how our son was himself victimized, versus treating us as another case. He saw the case through to the utmost extent of the law, so our son, who is an honor student, was completely exonerated, and he made sure that support and professional help were in place during the experience. He declined the court's offer of a 2-year probation and pushed harder with the D.A. even though we had already paid him his fees. Most attorneys would have simply walked away at that point; however, Neal wasn't satisfied with the results and had the case reset since he knew it was not a fair result for my son. In the end, the case was dismissed. "

He doesn't give up, no matter what you're up against
Client's child sex abuse case was dismissed

" This man saved my life from false imprisonment. Neal's belief in 'liberty and justice for all' as laid out in the Constitution of the United States, and especially as that principle relates to constitutional rights regarding the receipt of a fair trial, coupled with his refusal to quit fighting, are attributes of a noble spirit and a man of high character. When I interviewed Neal to defend me against very serious false accusations and criminal charges that followed, his candor about what I was up against and his real interest in my general welfare made choosing him to defend me a 'no brainer.' Hiring Neal after hearing Dick DeGuerin say 'Neal is a real fighter' was the best decision I could have made and this was after interviewing a number of attorneys. He cares about people, truth, and justice; an attorney who will not give up; a man who will defend the rights of anyone accused of a crime with every fiber of his being to ensure fairness and the protection of our legal rights."
