Representing People Facing Sexual Offense Charges


In many types of sexual offenses, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office won't offer a plea agreement unless it includes a minimum amount of jail time. It is important that you hire a criminal defense attorney who is versed in the tactics used by police officers and prosecutors - it could mean the difference between jail and freedom. Many of these accusations carry serious life long consequences, including sexual registration and up to life in the penitentiary.

If the police have enough evidence against you, they will charge you, so don't help them out by giving them more. Many people who pick up sexual crime charges just want to get this behind them.
