San Antonio Sex Crime Lawyer
Have you been charged with having sex with a minor?
We want you to understand that being charged with having sex with a minor does not always mean that you will be convicted of the offense. Getting help from a San Antonio sex crime attorney is going to increase your chances of a favorable outcome to the charges you face. The proper defense of your case depends upon the circumstances and evidence plus the dedication and resourcefulness of your lawyer.
We have over 40 years of combined experience that has given us specific stages that a sex crime case goes through in order to be resolved successfully. These include proper preparation and investigation so that all facts are known and documented. Once all the needed information is gathered, it needs to be properly evaluated so that a winning strategy can be developed. The final steps have to do with aggressive and dedicated negotiation and litigation on your behalf.
The Texas Penal Code makes it a crime for someone to engage in "sexual contact with a child or causes the child to engage in sexual contact." By child is meant someone under the age of 17. The common name is statutory rape and it can be charged as a second or third degree felony, both of which result in harsh penalties.
Sex Crime Attorney Serving Hondo, Floresville, New Braunfels, San Marcos
If you are convicted, steep fines, incarceration and other penalties are the normal consequences. You may have to register as a sex offender which will be part of your criminal record and can affect your ability to get a loan, be employed and in other ways. Brandon Hudson and Douglas Daniel, from our firm, feel that the accusations against you should not be permitted to destroy your life.
A lot depends on what occurred in your case. If for instance, a person who is 18 has consensual sex with someone who is 15, this may not be considered having sex with a minor. There are other viable defenses which we can explore once we have met with you and gathered all the needed information.
