16 year old and 11 year old at that time
Because your son is 16 years old, he is considered a juvenile for the purposes of criminal law. However, under Texas law he can be certified as an adult. The charge of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child is a First Degree Felony which carries a punishment range of 5-99 years in prison. Additionally, a conviction would result in lifetime registration as a sex offender. You should consult an experienced criminal defense attorney.See question
Should I speak with the investigating officer in regards to a crime, I have been accused of? What is the purpose of the interview. If I do, can the officer arrest me after the interview? The charge is for a Class A misdemeanor.
I agree with the other posts here. Do not speak with the investigating officer, speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney. If the police have enough evidence to charge you, they will. You will not talk yourself out of being charged but can definitely talk yourself into a criminal charge.See question
How much jail time am I looking at and will I have to pay the $2,000 surcharge for three years? I just got bailed out and court was reset to next month. I have a court appointed attorney but debating on hiring an experienced DWI attorney....
The maximum jail time for a first time DWI, which is classified as a Class B Misdemeanor, is 180 days in jail. That amount of jail time is highly unlikely if any jail time at all.
As to the surcharge, if you are convicted you will be required by DPS to pay a surcharge to have a valid driver's license.
You will need an experienced DWI attorney to investigate and evaluate the case.

As your son is charged with a 3rd Degree Felony punishable from 2-10 years in prison, he needs to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. If true, these are very good facts for his defense.See question
I'm 19 and got arrested for the first time with a dwi. They gave me a blood test and took me to jail. Friday is my court hearing. What do I plea and in most cases what do you think will happen?
You will not be asked to enter a plea when you go to court. The court will likely reset your case so that you can hire an attorney.
You should hire an attorney as soon as possible. You can have your license suspended by an adminstrative judge. Any attorney would need further details and to review the state's file, video etc., before they can advise you on possible outcomes.See question
My boyfriend is facing sexual/internet federal charges. My boyfriend has never been in trouble before and before his investigation had a good job. We were both currently trying to get out of debt so we do not have any money to hire an attorney. We...
Unforunatley people never expect to be charged criminally and are not prepared for the expense of legal representation to defend their freedom. However, your boyfriend's number one priority should now be to figure out a way to hire a competent defense attorney. His freedom depends on it.
There are many attorneys that offer payment plans. Follow the suggestions of the previous posts and keep looking.See question
Was written a ticket for out-of-date inspection and no front license plate by TX DPS Highway patrol in downtown Austin on city road. Does he have jurisdiction to do that?
DPS jurisdiction is statewide. You should get a new inspection and a front license plate and bring proof to the court. Most courts will dismiss the charges with post compliances fees of $10 and $20.See question

You should speak with recruiters from the different branches of the military. It is my understanding that each individual branch has different requirements to enlist.See question

A traffic ticket attorney may be your best best. If you have proof that you paid before your court date you should ultimately be able to straighten out the situation. However, as we all know the way things are run in the government doe not always make sense.
The one thing you also have to look out for is whether these this FTA is one and the same with the ticket you made and not some ticket you may have overlooked.See question
