Types Of Sex Crimes And The Associated Penalties

Being convicted of a sex crime, regardless of the level of offense, automatically brings with it the requirement to register as a sex offender. This means that you must inform the authorities every time you move. People can also look you up and find your name on the Texas sex offender registry. Residents in the surrounding area are informed when you move into their neighborhood, giving them the opportunity to protest the move.

The stigma of being a sex offender, no matter how long your name remains on the list, will never go away. You need an experienced Edinburg sex crimes lawyer to defend your rights.

At The Sanchez Law Firm in McAllen, we offer aggressive representation when you have been accused of a sexual assault or any other sex crime. Our goal is to prevent your name from ever being listed among the sex offenders.

How We Build Your Defense Strategy

We thoroughly investigate an accusation of sexual misconduct, asking who made it, how long between the alleged offense and informing the authorities, and the validity of your accuser’s claims. We pursue all possible defenses in your case. We work with the prosecution and seek dismissal of the charges. We vigorously defend your rights and your freedom.

Depending on the level of the offense and your prior record, you can be put in prison for anywhere between five years and life. We work diligently to keep you free and prevent your reputation from being permanently tarnished.
