Laredo lawyer assisting Texas residents charged with sexual related offenses
There are many types of crimes which can be considered a “sex offense.” Most cases will result in felony charges and, depending on the facts of the case, a defendant may find themselves charged in federal court. Prosecutors can be expected to aggressively pursue these types of cases and judges will often show little to no leniency to one who has been convicted. Typical cases brought against an accused include charges for:
- Child pornography
- The sexual abuse of children
- Failing to register as a sex offender
Those who face such allegations may feel that they have no options. The truth of the matter, however, is that these types of cases sometimes include situations in which the police illegally obtained evidence or in which the accusations are simply false. It is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible in order to determine one’s best course of action.
