Aggressive Sex Crimes Defense
In Texas, conviction on a sex crime charge can lead to a lengthy prison sentence and a requirement that you register as a sex offender. This can result in lifetime supervision. The staff at The Herrmann Law firm understand all the minute details of sex crimes prosecution and have the experience you need to deal with these types of cases. Attorney Herrmann defends men and women charged with such sex crimes, including:
- Failing to register as a sex offender. In Texas, the requirement to register as a sex offender can be lifelong. If you have been convicted of certain sex crimes, you must meet the requirements of registration every time you move.
- Sexual assault.
- Aggravated sexual assault. Aggravated sexual assault is a felony of the first degree in Texas, involving violence or the threat of violence.
- Sexual assault of a child. Often, the mere allegation of sexual improprieties with a child can have a devastating effect on your life and livelihood. In these situations, the evidence of sexual assault or other wrongdoing is often in the form of testimony from children, who don’t understand the allegations and may be improperly coached.
- Indecency with a child. Though less serious than sexual assault on a child, a charge of indecency with a child can carry similar consequences, including social stigma, damaged reputation and criminal penalties, including incarceration.
