If you should learn that you are being investigated for a sex crime or have been charged with a sex crime, including Internet and/or computer related sex crimes, contact a lawyer immediately. Often a police officer will contact an accused person and request them to give a statement and “tell their side of the story” and perhaps take a polygraph examination. Prior to agreeing to discuss the accusation with police, an accused person should consult with an experienced criminal lawyer to determine what response, if any, is in the person’s best interest. Even a statement denying guilt might later be used by the prosecutor to attempt to discredit the accused person at trial.
Conviction of a felony sex crime in either Texas State or Federal court may lead to a lengthy prison sentence and always requires registration as a sex offender. In more than twenty five years of criminal defense practice I have represented many people who have been charged with sex crimes and I am well aware of the anguish and humiliation just the accusation alone can cause a person and their family.
