Corpus Christi Sex Crimes Lawyer
Contact The Gould Law Firm for a Free Consultation
People who have been accused of sex crimes, especially sex crimes involving
a child, face immediate prosecution once an allegation has been made.
In Texas, prosecutors and law enforcement will stop at nothing to make
sure a person is convicted after they believe he or she has committed
a sexual offense. Even in cases where the sex crime allegations are false,
law enforcement will conduct non-discreet investigations, continually
question the accused and in some cases, may still pursue criminal charges.
- For this reason, people need aggressive representation from a criminal
defense lawyer when they have been charged with sex crimes such as:
- Date rape
- Statutory rape
- Sexual abuse
- Child molestation
- Crimes against children
- Child pornography/computer sex offenses
- Indecent exposure
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Lewd conduct
Life-Altering Legal Consequences
When people are convicted of sex crimes, they will face a variety of devastating
legal penalties. In felony sex crime cases, convicted offenders will have
to spend time in jail. However, in cases involving misdemeanor offenses,
people may not have to serve jail time, but will most likely have to pay
fines, pay court fees, do community service, be placed on probation and/or
be ordered to attend rehabilitation programs.
These penalties can alter a person's quality of life for years to come.
Aside from these penalties, people will also have to deal with the fact
that their family, friends, co-workers and community now see them as sexual
offenders or sexual predators, which can be difficult.
