The Woodlands Sex Crime Defense Attorneys
Hire a Former Prosecutor On Your Side
In 2016, Texas authorities made approximately 5,600 arrests related to rape and other sex offenses, and at least 700 of the defendants were juveniles. These alarming statistics are among the highest in the country. In connection with these arrests, alleged offenders often face other serious charges, such as assault and prostitution. If accused, police will pursue a criminal case against you, and if arrested, the state will prosecute you to the maximum penalties allowed by law.
That is why, before you take any other action, you should seek experienced and aggressive legal help from Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law for the best possible defense strategy and representation. Our legal team has successfully challenged sex crime claims at trial and will fight to have your entire case dismissed or the penalties against you substantially reduced.
Call (713) 535-9711 for knowledgeable and skilled legal counsel in Magnolia, Spring, Willis, and Montgomery County.
Sex Crimes in Texas
Sex offenses in Texas are some of the most severe in the United States. Sections 21 and 22 of the Texas Penal Code describe the terms of incarceration and fines that are used to punish sex offenses. Since most sex crimes are felonies, a conviction results in a lengthy prison sentence, fines worth tens of thousands, and registration as a sex offender – potentially for the rest of your life, especially if the offense involved violence or children.
Numerous crimes have sexual elements, but discussions of sex offenses focus primarily on:
Indecency with a child
Aggravated sexual assault (the term used in scenarios when the victim was age 13 or younger).
Even before you step foot inside a courtroom, your accusations can make you already appear guilty by the media and the public. When charged or arrested for a sex offense, the future suddenly becomes uncertain. Remain calm and silent, and hire our The Woodlands sex crimes lawyer who has successfully defended against these life-changing claims.
