What are the Penalties for Sex Crimes?
If you are facing accusations of a sex crime, contact The Christopher P. Cavazos Law Firm, PLLC and have our law firm fight to protect your future. Most sex crimes are charged as felonies, which means they can carry serious penalties that can ruin your reputation, jeopardize your freedom, and limit your future opportunities. These penalties include lenghty prison sentences, fines and more. Turn to a proven firm with a track record of excellent results in a wide range of sex crimes.
Early Intervention Is Critical
During the initial stages of a sex crime accusation - especially the investigations - is when it is absolutely critical that you are represented by a McAllen criminal defense lawyer.
We have extensive experience in sex crimes investigations that have resulted in dismissals of the charges or even no charges being filed. Having an attorney with the right skills and insight guiding you early on in a case is essential. While law enforcement officials are investigating the accusations, your criminal defense attorney can advise you of your rights and protect you from incriminating yourself.
Will I Be on the Sex Offender Registry?
In Texas, individuals convicted of a sex offense must register as a sex offender. Failure to do so can result in additional penalties. Once you are registered, your personal information will be made available to the public, including your address, your conviction, your employment, and more.
