Katy Sex Crimes Lawyer

Our society has a strong reaction against crimes involving sex. Our revulsion toward rape, assault, the exploitation of minors and similar offenses is good and healthy. Where that revulsion goes awry is when it’s assumed that the horrific nature of a crime always means that the person charged is guilty–or that the alleged crime even happened. That’s why defendant should rely on a Katy sex crimes lawyer who doesn’t automatically believe what the prosecution says and insists the state fulfill its burden of proof–not the other way around.

Cory Roth Law Office knows that prosecutors aren’t always right and sometimes might not even be truthful. We believe in innocence until proven guilty. We fight hard for our defendants. From our Katy office, we serve clients across Fort Bend County and Harris County. Call today at (713) 322-5733 or contact us online to set up a consultation.

Penalties for Sex Crimes in Texas

With possible crimes including everything from rape to indecent exposure, the possible penalties covers the gamut of Texas law. The lowest-level offense is a Class C misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine. The highest-level offense is a 1st-degree felony, which opens the door to a life prison sentence.

That’s a big spectrum on which the legal system can operate, and it can underscore the importance a Katy sex crimes lawyer will play in the process. The types of charges filed will go a long way towards determining the defense strategies that are adopted. Depending on the quality (or lack thereof) of the prosecution’s evidence, there can be room for negotiation. Sex crimes allegations, like others in the criminal justice system, often see the most important work done before charges are officially filed or before a trial begins.

How To Beat a Sex Crimes Charge

The advance of science has been an ally of innocent defendants when it comes to sex crimes charges. A crime of this nature invariably leaves DNA evidence behind. If the defendant’s DNA cannot be matched with that at the scene, then the prosecution will be faced with challenges that might be insurmountable.

It’s also possible that an alleged crime might have been a voluntary encounter, with the focus being on which side is telling the truth. Here’s where it’s imperative that a Katy sex crimes attorney be strong-willed–while people, including those on the jury might feel a natural empathy with the alleged victim, the legal reality is that the defendant is innocent until proven guilty.

A defense lawyer must aggressively challenge the prosecuting attorney’s evidence and demonstrate that there may be considerable doubt about the guilt of the defendant. And if the jury harbors any doubts, they are obligated to acquit.

The stakes are too high for a defense attorney to flinch in the face of public pressure. The defendant not only faces jail time, but even upon their release, there’s the matter of registration as a sex offender.

The Texas Sex Offender Registry

By law, anyone convicted of a sex crime must register with the state. They must report regularly to law enforcement to ensure basic information, such as where they are living, is up to date. This information is available to the public and neighbors may be notified that a convicted sex offender is living among them.

All of this can make rebuilding’s one life hard enough. There’s also the loss of rights that come with being in the registry. The rights to travel, participate in community events and own a firearm may be significantly restricted. Depending on the nature of the crime, a person may have to stay in the registry for anywhere from 10 years to the rest of their life. Even after a penalty has been served, the Texas Sex Offender Registration Program still lingers.

That’s why Cory Roth Law Office is determined to make sure our defendants get a legal defense that’s both aggressive and diligent. We want to pursue all possible angles of acquittal or sentence reduction and then investigate them thoroughly. The accused deserve fairness and we’re determined to provide it for them.
