I sure wish he had contacted us before responding to her since this was obviously a set up.
HIs being blind doesn't affect his ability to be charged with this crime although it could if he hasn't known the girl or her age. In texas it isn't required that he know she was underage, it is more of what we know as a "strict liability". If he did it and she was underage then he is guilty. There have even been cases where the minor told the defendant she was over age, was in a bar that didn't allow people under 21, and she had a fake ID showing she was over 21 that she showed the defendant. He was still found guilty.
He can absolutely be charged and he can be found guilty. That means he needs a lawyer. The statute of limitations on this can vary depending on exactly what they charge him with and there are a number of possibilities as to potential charges.
