Sex Crimes

It Just Takes an Accusation

Today all that is needed to arrest a person for a sex crime is an accusation.  This mere accusation can destroy a person's reputation and tear families apart.  Is an accusation enough to convict someone?  Unfortunately, people are reluctant to disbelieve a complainant in these types of cases.  Even more devastating is the fact that false accusations occur frequently in sexual assault cases.  If you are accused of a sexual crime, you need an experienced attorney who will work tirelessly to protect your rights.  

Types of Sex Crimes

There are several sexual assault-type charges in Texas.  Depending on the specific charge, the guidelines for punishment, probation, and parole are wide-ranging.  It is vital to know what you are charged with and even more important to have an attorney who knows these cases and their consequences.  Here are just a few examples of the possible charges a person could be facing :

  • Sexual Assault (child or adult victim)
  • Aggravated Sexual Assault (child or adult victim)
  • Super-Aggravated Sexual Assault with a Child
  • Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child
  • Indecency with a Child by Contact
  • Indecency with a Child by Exposure
  • Improper Relationship Between Educator and Student
