Amarillo Sex Crime Defense Attorney
Texas has extremely strict laws regarding sexual criminal offenses, especially when the crime involves a victim who is underage. These types of allegations can destroy families, and can quickly become public affairs, and often the public can judge a person accused of a sex crime as guilty before ever standing trial. As law enforcement and state prosecutors remain extremely focused on conviction rates, a sex crime charge can feel like a completely insurmountable task to overcome.
Sex offenses are extremely serious, and can be punishable with severe consequences, including:
- Significant time spent in prison.
- Very large fines and court fees.
- Inclusion on the state sex offender registry.
- Loss of ability to find employment.
- Difficulty finding a place to live.
If you’ve been charged with a sex crime, it is absolutely imperative that you have an experienced and aggressive attorney to give you the most successful resolution possible. Just because you’ve been arrested and charged does not mean that you’re guilty. Just like any other criminal offense, you have your constitutional rights. The Warner Law Firm is here to defend those rights.
Each day, individuals are falsely accused of a sex crime. The public and media rightfully bury the legal system in an avalanche of pressure to convict anyone charged with a sex crime. Our mission as your attorney is to protect your rights and aggressively fight for you so that you do not fall victim to being guilty until proven innocent.
