Houston Sex Crimes Lawyer
Facing any type of criminal charge can have a significant impact on you and your family. But sex crimes cases are especially traumatic, as they carry a social stigma that is often not erased even if the charges are dropped or the accused is found not guilty. That is why it is incumbent upon you to be proactive in fighting any allegations involving rape, prostitution, or sex crimes involving minors.
At the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates, we have nearly two decades of experience in defending residents of Houston and the surrounding area against a wide range of sex crimes allegations. Attorney Tad Nelson is a former prosecutor himself, and he understands how local district attorneys and judges approach these cases. He and his team will put that knowledge to work for you if you are accused of any of the following criminal offenses:
- Aggravated Sexual Assault
- Attempted Sexual Assault
- Burglary With Intent to Commit Sexual Assault
- Indecent Exposure
- Internet Sex Crimes
- Online Solicitation of a Minor
- Public Lewdness
- Rape (Sexual Assault)
- Possession of child pornography
- Sexual Assault of a Child
- Solicitation of Prostitution
- Sexually Oriented Business (SOB)
A Sex Crimes Conviction Will Follow You For Life
Beyond the immediate criminal penalties for a conviction, notably a lengthy prison sentence, many sex crimes convictions in Texas will also require you to register as a sex offender with local authorities–potentially for the rest of your life. Many people do not appreciate this reality when first accused. Indeed, many accused individuals falsely assume a “registered sex offender” must be a hard-core rapist. But the Texas sex offender registry is quite broad and includes offenses like indecent exposure.
In addition, the Law Offices of Tad Nelson understands that in many cases, a person is the victim of false allegations of sexual misconduct. We often see this is family law situations, where an estranged spouse may falsely accuse the other of sexual assault–against them or a child–in a misguided attempt to gain the upper hand in a divorce or child custody proceeding. Whatever the scenario, we always take an aggressive approach to contesting false allegations where there is often no evidence beyond the accuser’s uncorroborated statements.
