We Fight Sexual Assault Charges!

A Houston Based Law Firm Since 1996

Sexual assault is a felonious criminal offense which carries serious consequences for persons who are innocent, as well as the guilty. Simply being the target of blame in a rape case is enough to cost you friends, your career, and the trust of your family. The stakes are much higher for persons accused of sexual assault that are guilty.

Whether you’re guilty or innocent you’ll need an effective lawyer on your side.

Attorney Emily Detoto understands the complications associated with criminal cases involving sexual assault. Even if you have yet to be formally charged, but have good reason to believe you may be, having our legal team on your side will benefit your case and may prevent charges. Quickly retaining legal representation will not only serve as an affirmative action that will result in immediate damage control, but may also preserve any potential defense options that may be available to us.

Sexual Assault Convictions

If you’re convicted of sexual assault in Texas you’ll face punishment under 2nd Degree Felony guidelines in Texas, which could result in a prison sentence of up to 20 years, half of which would need to be served prior to any potential for parole eligibility.

You may also be liable to pay the State of Texas a fine of up to $10,000.00, be forced to deal with the woes associated with registration as a sex offender, and possibly face complications in your personal relationships and career. If you’re accused of the sexual assault of a minor the charge will be classified as a 1st Degree Felony which could result in a life sentence.

False Allegations of Sexual Assault

As stated previously when we mentioned consequences for the innocent, people always rush to assume guilt when a person is accused of sexual assault. This is especially true in cases involving children or minors. The first thought that comes to the minds of legal-layman is, “Why would they accused you of rape if you didn’t do it?”

On the contrary, the truth of the matter is counter-intuitive. More people are falsely accused of rape and other sex crimes more that the general public might ever believe, which is why it’s important to retain legal representation the second you think you might be facing such accusations.
