There are few offenses that carry the stigma that comes with being accused of a sex crime. It is not uncommon for close friends to disappear and long-held jobs to be lost simply due to the accusation. While the Constitution says you are innocent until proven guilty, many people will just assume you are guilty. In addition, these charges carry with them hefty ramifications–possible registration as a sex offender for life, substantial prison time or onerous probation terms.
The Texas legislature has also passed laws increasing the penalties and barring probation in some cases simply due to the nature of the allegations made. You need a qualified, competent lawyer who can explain the law to you and walk you through your options when facing these charges.
A Former Felony Prosecutor As Your Advocate
We understand that just because someone has made an outcry, it does not mean you are guilty. We know that false allegations sometimes arise out of child custody disputes, ended relationships and attempts to extort money. As a former felony prosecutor, John Rentz has handled a large number of sexually-based cases and understands how to best approach these sensitive situations.
When faced with this type of allegation, you need aggressive, effective representation. Whether your case needs qualified expert testimony, private investigation or a compelling jury argument, we have the skills and tools to craft and present the best case for you.
In addition to defending against criminal sexual charges, if you have a past conviction that required you to register as a sex offender, we can help explore your options for removal from the sex offender registry.
