Sex crimes are a broad category of state crimes ranging from indecent exposure to aggravated sexual assault of a child. Offenses in this category range from a Class B Misdemeanor to a First Degree Felony, with punishments from 6 months probation to life in prison.
These crimes are very serious not only due to the potential for a harsh punishment, but also due to the stigma that society places on those convicted or even charged with sex crimes. Sex crime allegations are not likely to go away without a fight as the victims involved, and the State’s poor view on these crimes, make it likely that the State will want to pursue a conviction. You need to hire a Houston Sex Crimes Lawyer with experience in handling sex crime cases to ensure a just result.
