Houston Sexual Assault Defense Lawyer
Facing Charges for a Sex Crime? Your Future is at Stake.
Over the past several years, sex crimes have drawn the attention of the public and prosecutors throughout South Texas. Even for first-time offenders, some sex crimes against children can result in a longer prison sentence than murder or homicide. Add the Texas sex registry to the penalty and you can be looking at a lifetime punishment.
