Richmond Sex Crime Defense Attorneys

Accused of a Sex Crime in TX? We Can Help!

The advice of a seasoned Richmond sex crime defense lawyer can be especially valuable in these highly sensitive cases. It takes practical experience to make an accurate identification of your risks and the relative strength of the case against you. Having a criminal defense attorney with a reputation as a tough courtroom adversary can improve your leverage during pretrial proceedings and plea negotiations.

At The Law Office of Larry McDougal in Richmond, we offer clients these advantages. Our founding attorney, Larry P. McDougal Sr., is a former police officer and prosecuting attorney who knows how sex crimes are investigated, charged and resolved. He knows where to look for the weaknesses in the government’s case and he can work toward the reduction of serious felony charges by exploiting those weaknesses. If it appears that the government can’t prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt, he can show a jury precisely why you should be acquitted at trial.

Our Richmond sex crime defense lawyers handle a wide range of offenses, which include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Sexual assault

  • Date rape or acquaintance rape

  • Statutory rape

  • Lewd and lascivious acts with a minor including child molestation

  • Unlawful sexual activity between minors

  • Internet and computer sex crimes

  • Cellphone sex crimes such as sexting or unlawful possession of nude photos

Sex Crimes in Texas

Sex crimes involve unlawful or forced sexual conduct against someone else, whether it’s another adult or a minor. Since most sex crimes in Texas are felonies, a conviction will lead to several years in prison, costly fines, as well as restitution and potentially a civil lawsuit from the alleged victim.

However, unlike any other crime, after serving a sentence for a sex crime, you will be required to register as a sex offender, which means your personal information (e.g. your criminal record and home address) will be available to law enforcement and the public. While continual registration may last a year, it is possible that you could be labeled a sex offender for the rest of your life.

Unfortunately, due to the serious nature of sex crimes, even merely being accused can make you appear guilty to the community and the media. You will be harshly judged before ever stepping foot in court or even before you are charged with the alleged crime. That is why it is important to hire a criminal defense attorney immediately after hearing about the accusations.

Let Us Protect You Today

Every criminal case presents the defendant with options. You can either accept a plea offer or take your case to trial. This choice is always yours and yours alone, but you’ll be in a better position to make a good decision for yourself if you’re getting the information you need from your sex crime defense attorney.

Our firm’s sex crime defense clients include adults, juveniles, professionals and foreign nationals who could face deportation on a sex crime conviction. We represent clients not only with a view toward resolving immediate problems but also for protecting any long-term personal or professional interests.
