SAN ANTONIO SEX CRIMES LAWYERS
Few criminal accusations are more serious than those related to sexual misconduct. Whether the allegations include indecent exposure or very serious charges of rape, child pornography, or other sex crimes involving minors, you need a criminal defense attorney with a strong track record in this practice area. Aside from the public humiliation and social stigma attached to these crimes, criminal penalties upon conviction are severe and can include mandatory sex offender registration. Furthermore, some sex crime convictions are based on little hard evidence and consist of “he said she said” scenarios.
Because of the grave consequences connected to sex crimes, you must take immediate action to protect yourself, defend your rights and freedom, and put a proven ally and advocate on your side. At Hernández Dauphin Legal, P.C., we represent individuals accused of all kinds of sexually-related crimes. We are here to be your counselor, advisor, and guide in navigating the state or federal criminal justice systems.

Most of these offenses are viewed as felonies under Texas Penal Code Title 5 Chapter 21 Sexual Offenses. Penalties will depend on the nature of the crime with attention paid to actual physical harm caused to alleged victims, whether deadly weapons were used, whether the alleged victims were minors, the elderly, or the disabled, prior convictions, if any, and other factors that may aggravate or mitigate the offense.
These are commonly highly complex and sensitive matters that may require the third-party evaluations of other investigators, mental health specialists, and additional professionals. Unfortunately, false allegations are often made against defendants with motivations based on revenge, spite, jealousy, or malice. These commonly occur in cases where alleged victims seek to gain some advantage, whether legal or otherwise, over the accused, such as in cases involving the breakdown of intimate relationships, battles over child custody, or other situations.
SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION IN TEXAS
Mandatory sex offender registration is a common penalty for sex crime convictions. This registration program is established under Texas Code Title 1 Chapter 62. This involves your personal information being exposed online for public access that includes your identity and more.
Sex offender registration can result in years or a lifetime of restrictions as to where you can live and work as well as a heavy social stigma and ostracism that can majorly impact your future. Many adults convicted of sex offenses must register for life while juvenile offenders must register for up to 10 years. Failure to register is its own separate felony.
