One of the most serious of all sex crime charges is that of child molestation. When a sex offense is committed against a child under 18 years of age, the penalties are always much more severe. Molestation of a child involves touching or fondling the child in a sexual manner or in any way that makes them uncomfortable. This crime can also escalate to aggravated criminal sexual assault if the offender commits sexual penetration and / or causes injury to the child.
Accusations of child molestation are often made by an angry, fearful, or overprotective individual trying to punish the alleged offender or by children who are afraid or put up to it by an adult.
