Sex crimes are among the most serious offenses an individual can face. Even before you have had the benefit of a trial, sex crime allegations can cause irreparable harm to your reputation with a social stigma that is difficult to manage. Because of this and the very severe penalties attached to any sex crime conviction, it is imperative that you seek legal help from a trusted criminal defense attorney.
At LaHood Norton Law Group, our team of former prosecutors knows how the state uses evidence against defendants. We can use that insight to work with prosecutors to drop charges, reduce charges, or to seek reduced sentencing where applicable. We can apply our extensive experience, training, and skill to fight for you throughout your case.
The Texas Penal Code recognizes many kinds of sex crimes.
Most sex crimes are felonies, which means prison time of more than a year, fines, and probation. Beyond that, your life will change dramatically. You will likely be ordered to register as a sex offender, which means that your identity will be made public and will restrict where you can live and what kind of employment you can seek. Sex offender registration is usually for life.
Sex crimes are often based on false accusations and other misleading “evidence.” Actual physical evidence may be lacking. Therefore, you should seek the assistance of our San Antonio sex crime defense attorneys as early as possible. Immediate intervention may lead to avoiding charges or having them dropped. Every case is different, and LaHood Norton Law Group will work vigorously to help you seek a positive outcome.
