Aggressive Plano Sex Crimes Attorney Protecting the Rights of the Accused
Committed to providing a vigorous defense
Being charged with a sex crime is a very serious matter, and a conviction can have significant long term legal and collateral consequences on your life. Sex crimes are perhaps the most socially stigmatized offenses in our society, and a conviction can brand you as an offender or social deviant for life. Depending on your age and the nature of the offense, a conviction may mean that you need to register as a sex offender until you are 28, for 10 years after the completion of your sentence, or perhaps even for the rest of your life. Being accused of a sex crime can be a frightening and often humiliating experience, and it is important to have an advocate on your side. The consequences of a sexually-related conviction can also be extremely severe. It is important that anyone accused of a sex crime contact an experienced sex crime attorney as soon as possible. The police and the prosecution have one goal in mind, and that is to get a conviction against whomever they have accused.
