Child Molestation

Bring a sex crimes defender to your corner

In Tennessee, charges for sex crimes involving children are among the most serious offenses that a person can face. Make no mistake, if you have been arrested or accused of child molestation or sexual abuse, your future is on the line. Depending on the severity of the alleged events, you could be facing decades in prison, substantial fines, and mandatory registration as a sexual offender.

The importance of securing legal representation as soon as possible cannot be overstated. Joshua T. Crain, Attorney at Law, a Murfreesboro criminal defense attorney, will work tirelessly to see that your charges are reduced or dropped completely.


In Tennessee, the nature of offenses related to child molestation, sexual abuse, or the fondling of a child, can result in a litany of charges. For example, the sexual touching of a child under the age of 13 can lead to a charge of aggravated sexual battery. This is typically a class B felony, punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of $25,000.

Furthermore, a conviction for a sexual offense can affect a person’s livelihood long after prison sentences have been served and fines have been paid. Those found guilty of child molestation will be required to register as a sex offender. The registry is publicly available and can come to affect the places a person may live, the jobs they can hold, and parental responsibilities such as child custody or visitation. Additionally, the social stigma may be impossible to quantify.


If you have been accused of a sexual offense against a child, it can be difficult to feel as though anyone is on your side.

However, you do not have to face the legal system alone or unprepared. Mr. Crain, a Murfreesboro criminal defense attorney, can work with you personally to craft a legal strategy that maximizes the strength of your defense.

When your freedom is at stake, contact Joshua T. Crain, Attorney at Law and build a powerhouse defense.
