Facing Sex Crime Charges? We've Been Defending the Accused Since 1995

Houston Sex Crime Attorney

Trustworthy Guidance from Guy L. Womack & Associates, P.C.

Facing allegations of a sex offense is a terrifying situation to face. Due to the sensitive nature of any type of sex crime, the defendant is likely to face:

  • Harsh prosecution
  • A ruined reputation
  • Steep criminal penalties

Avoiding a conviction and criminal penalties in these situations can prove to be exceedingly difficult, particularly when the alleged victim of the offense is a minor. Even in cases that are based upon false allegations, a defendant may find that he or she is in a fight to the end to avoid extensive imprisonment, fines and sex offender registration.

Registration of a Sex Offender

In the state of Texas, one of the most concerning repercussions of a conviction is mandatory registration as a sex offender. This list is published for the benefit of the public to make them aware of convicted sex offenders in their area. As a public database, it can be accessed for any reason by teachers, parents, and others in the public sphere. It is administered by the Texas Department of Public Safety and an individual can be searched by:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Zip code
  • Address
  • County of residence
  • Institute of higher education

In many cases, a convicted sex crime defendant will be required to register as a sex offender and will remain so for around 10 years. Not surprisingly, this can have great impact on the defendant’s future and will impact various areas of their life such as:

  • Rejection from jobs you would otherwise qualify for
  • Harassment from neighbors
  • Exclusion from relatives and friends
  • Prevention from renting in certain areas

In some cases, you may qualify for deregistration.

Deregistration Laws & Limitations

Some sex offender registrants may be able to get themselves removed from the registry under The Texas Code of Criminal Procedure Article 62.301 as long as criteria is met. Deregistration is not expungement of the crime, it just removes the defendant from the public record of sex offenders. Some of the criteria include:

  • The alleged offense occurred in Texas
  • Offender must file a motion requesting early termination
  • Offender has only one sex crime conviction
  • Offender completed Sex Offender Treatment Program
  • Offender received a professional confirmation that he or she does not present a threat
  • The conviction resulted in his or her registration as a sex offender

It is important to speak with your Houston sex crime attorney to discuss the case in further depth and build a specific defense for your situation.

False Allegations and Sex Crimes

It is an unfortunate truth that at times alleged sex crime victims falsely accuse others of these serious crimes. A person may make entirely false accusations or may misunderstand a situation and therefore make allegations that have no foundation in the truth.

Revenge, jealousy and anger are all potential reasons to make false allegations of rape, child molestation or other sex offenses. A parent may even resort to this in a bitter child custody battle. By exposing the truth about false sex crime allegations, an experienced criminal defense attorney can work to help a defendant avoid a conviction and grave criminal penalties.
