Protect Your Reputation and Future Against Sex Crime Convictions
Any allegation of a sex offense comes with an immediate social stigma — a social stigma that attaches to few other criminal charges. A person accused of any sort of sexual assault not only must deal with the criminal justice system, but must also face the court of public opinion.
It is vital to your reputation, your freedom and your future that you begin an aggressive defense against sex crimes charges immediately. The sooner you contact a Sexual Assault Lawyer, the sooner he will be able to begin building your defense, which could include:
- Suppressing the evidence: Did police officers obtain evidence through illegal search and seizure? Did they have a proper search warrant? Were you entrapped (induced to commit the crime) by an investigator?
- Proving you were wrongfully accused: Did the alleged victim lie because he or she was motivated by a child custody or divorce case? Was the alleged victim trying to protect his or her reputation? Was he or she enticed into giving false evidence?

Sexual Offender Registry — Lasting Consequences of a Conviction
After a conviction for a sex crime, the state of Texas may require you to register as a sex offender — a requirement that can dramatically affect where you live, your social reputation and your ability to live a normal life. If you fail to register or fail to notify police when you move or start a new job, you may face additional criminal charges.
Skilled criminal defense is key to avoiding sex offender registration. Lawyer Patrick L. Hancock will aggressively pursue the dismissal of your charges or work to reduce the potential penalties in your case through negotiation or in the courtroom.
