Sex Crime Lawyer in Denton
Understanding Sex Crime Laws in Texas
In Texas, sex crimes are one of the most aggressively prosecuted charges. Sex offenses have gained greater publicity, which has resulted in the implementation of stricter laws and new methods of law enforcement. Sex crime accusations and convictions have the potential to destroy your reputation, freedom, and future opportunities. If you are charged with any type of sex crime, retain the legal counsel of our Denton criminal defense attorney.
Sex crimes are either categorized as forcible sex offenses or non-forcible sex offenses. Some of the most common types of sex crimes include:
- Child pornography
- Child molestation
- Indecent exposure
- Solicitation of prostitution
Sex Crime Penalties
Any sex crime charge has the potential to change your life forever. If you are accused of a sex crime in Texas, speak with a lawyer from our firm. Penalties for each type of sex offense depend on the specific crime. Many sex crimes are charged as second-degree felonies, which mean that you can expect between 2 and 20 years in prison if convicted.
Texas also has laws against sexting. The sending or receiving of explicit images can be a crime, especially if the images are of a minor. This action can be charged as trafficking in child pornography, which is a felony sex offense.
