Texas teacher accused of sex crimes

There are any number of challenges one faces in life, and for a surprising number of individuals, a criminal accusation is one such challenge. As many Texas residents understand, when facing a criminal charge for any crime, it is crucial to be aware of one's rights. Such knowledge could make the difference between substantial jail time and the state dropping fines or charges altogether. In particular, an allegation of sexual misconduct or child sexual abuse can be extremely serious. Known for being tough on crime, the state of Texas applies heavy consequences to sex crimes. One Texas educator is currently facing such potential consequences, which could lead to time in prison and could dramatically alter his future career. An Arlington elementary school principal was recently charged with using a computer to solicit and lure a child and traveling to meet or lure a child, among other charges. An online sexual predator sting operation resulted in the man's arrest after authorities allege he chatted online and sent explicit photos with an individual the man believed to be under 16 years old. The individual was actually an officer. The 54-year-old educator was visiting family in Florida when he was arrested after apparently trying to meet up with the child. He resigned from his position shortly after his arrest. The educator is now facing substantial consequences including jail time and damage to reputation. When facing any criminal charge, it is important to be apprised of the law as well as to acquire adequate representation. Pointing out weaknesses in the prosecution's case as well as advocating assertively can make all the difference in the world for someone with a professional reputation to uphold.

Being charged with a crime is a serious issue. Particularly when such criminal accusation is a felony, individuals charged should take the accusations seriously. In Texas, potential consequences of a felonious conviction range from substantial fines, lengthy jail time, probation and serious reputation damage. These potential life-altering consequences are exactly why it is important to be aware of one's rights when entering into criminal litigation, specifically domestic violence accusations.

While it is a common assumption that the criminal justice system creates a fair and equitable process under which crimes are prosecuted, this is not always the case. Where quotas, belief systems and ambition are in play, sometimes police departments will go the extra mile to charge an individual, potentially in violation of the Constitution.

There are many potential consequences to any crime, which is why taking criminal charges seriously is so crucial. Texas sentences range from substantial fines, jail time and probation, to name a few. On top of these possibly life-altering results is the damage to one's reputation that any criminal conviction has on a person.
