So, you're facing a criminal trial in Texas, and now you're worried about what will happen. The first thing you need to do is to make sure you have a defense in place. This defense strategy isn't just meant to help you during your trial; it's also part of the plan to keep you out of the media and to protect your reputation. The priority of anyone creating such a strategy is to find out what the prosecutor plans to say or do in court. By doing this, you can come up with reasonable responses and explanations for anything that prosecutors claim you did.

Online sexual solicitation is defined as being an online communication where someone tries to get a minor to talk about sex when he or she doesn't want to, requests the minor to do something he or she doesn't want to or when the person discusses things with sexual overtones.

In fact, some cases are defined by the solicitation being "flirting," although some people do consider this to be grooming.
Here's something unusual that you may be interested in hearing about if you think you could be charged for a patient abusing his or her prescription.
