Charges for sex offenses in Central and South Texas can take some people by surprise. For Internet solicitation of a minor, Child Pornography or other charges, an investigation may have been taking place months or even years before you are ever charged. Similarly, if you have been accused of sexual assault, statutory rape or rape and believe that someone is going to press charges, you must contact a lawyer immediately. The longer you wait, the less time a criminal defense attorney has to prepare your case to prove your innocence.
The Law Offices of Trey Hicks knows being charged with a sex offense cannot only be humiliating, but can also have long-lasting effects on your life in many ways. Those convicted of sexual offenses are often required to submit personal information to the Sex Offender Registry, which will publicly list you as someone convicted of a sex crime for the rest of your life. The consequences of being branded in this way are far-reaching and can prevent you from finding quality employment, from living in certain areas and can even threaten your safety.
