Dallas-area Teacher Pleads Guilty to Sex Crimes Charges

A former Dallas-area high school teacher has admitted to taking lewd photos and videos of himself together with three of his own minor female students in an explicit sexual act.

Willis Bassham, a former teacher at Garland High School, pleaded guilty to charges of child pornography possession. Separate charges involving indecency with a child and molestation are likely to be added.

For these charges, Bassham faces penalties including up to 10 years in prison, fines as high as  $250,000, and inclusion on a national sex offender registry.

The penalties associated with sex crimes charges of any kind can be severe, having a permanent effect on your personal, financial, and professional life. Fortunately, an experienced sex crimes defense lawyer may be able to have the charges against you and the penalties you face decreased in severity, or possibly, dropped altogether.
